Interview with Brien Foerster – Unravelling the Genetics of Elongated Skulls

In this revealing interview, Brien Foerster sheds lights on DNA testing undertaken on one of the Paracas elongated skulls.  More than 300 of these elongated skulls have already been found and physical features suggest that the skulls were not the result of head binding or head flattening practices.

Brien Foerster reveals new details about the recent genetic testing carried out on one of the Paracas skulls and what exactly the DNA analysis showed.  He also shares his own theory about the findings and discusses what will happen now that this initial result has been announced.


I really appreciate the work Brien Foerster has done with the Paracas skulls. I had the pleasure of also interviewing him on my radio show. What I would like to point out is the usage of his material to state that the Nephilim have been proven out. This can't be correct based on the fact that the mitochondrial DNA comes from the female side, not the male side. For those pushing the Nephilim theory, the story is that "male" nephilim mated with "human" women not the other way around. I look forward to the work that is yet come from Mr. Brien Foerster.

"The Nephilim /ˈnɛfɨˌlɪm/ were the offspring of the "sons of God" and the "daughters of men" according to Genesis 6:4; and giants who inhabited Canaan according to Numbers 13:33. "

I'd like to see more genetic testing done if possible. This is probably another species of human that has been hidden.

Is somebody doing some DNA analysis on Malta`s elongated skulls?
There is some correlation in Between Paracas`s and Malta`s elongated skulls?

Ancient Technology

Grinding stone, Dendera Temple, Egypt.
Most people know of the great construction achievements of the dynastic Egyptians such as the pyramids and temples of the Giza Plateau area as well as the Sphinx. Many books and videos show depictions of vast work forces hewing blocks of stone in the hot desert sun and carefully setting them into place.

Our Mission

At Ancient Origins, we believe that one of the most important fields of knowledge we can pursue as human beings is our beginnings. And while some people may seem content with the story as it stands, our view is that there exists countless mysteries, scientific anomalies and surprising artifacts that have yet to be discovered and explained.

The goal of Ancient Origins is to highlight recent archaeological discoveries, peer-reviewed academic research and evidence, as well as offering alternative viewpoints and explanations of science, archaeology, mythology, religion and history around the globe.

We’re the only Pop Archaeology site combining scientific research with out-of-the-box perspectives.

By bringing together top experts and authors, this archaeology website explores lost civilizations, examines sacred writings, tours ancient places, investigates ancient discoveries and questions mysterious happenings. Our open community is dedicated to digging into the origins of our species on planet earth, and question wherever the discoveries might take us. We seek to retell the story of our beginnings.
