The Starchild Skull is a mysterious skull discovered in Mexico in the 1930s. It is an ancient relic that has baffled scientists and archaeologists for decades due to its unusual shape and size. The skull is said to be approximately 900 years old and is believed to have belonged to a child who lived in Mexico during the time of the Aztecs.
The Starchild Skull was discovered in a mine in the Copper Canyon area of Mexico by an American girl named Anna Mitchell-Hedges in 1930. The girl was accompanying her adoptive father, a famous British explorer and archaeologist named Frederick Mitchell-Hedges, on an expedition to the area. The skull was found buried in a tunnel deep within the mine and was surrounded by a number of other ancient artifacts.
The skull is different from any other human skull ever discovered. It has a much larger brain capacity than a typical human skull and the eye sockets are much larger and more rounded. The back of the skull is also flattened, which is not typical of human skulls. There are also other physical anomalies that have led some scientists to speculate that the skull is not of human origin.
The Starchild Skull has been the subject of much controversy and debate in the scientific community. Some scientists believe that the skull is the result of a rare genetic disorder, while others believe that it may be evidence of extraterrestrial life. There are also those who believe that the skull is simply a hoax or a fabrication.
In the early 2000s, a team of researchers led by Lloyd Pye, a researcher and author, conducted a number of scientific tests on the Starchild Skull. The tests included DNA analysis, X-rays, and CT scans. The results of these tests were inconclusive, but they did show that the skull was not a hoax and that it was indeed an ancient relic.
Despite the inconclusive nature of the scientific tests, the Starchild Skull remains a mystery to this day. Many people continue to believe that it is evidence of extraterrestrial life, while others believe that it is simply a rare genetic anomaly. Whatever the case may be, the Starchild Skull remains one of the most fascinating and mysterious relics in the world.
Unfortunately, Lloyd Pye passed away in December of 2013, before conclusive results could be made. Hopefully, wherever he is now, he knows he actual truth.
