Incredible DNA Test Results on 2,000 Years Old Elongated Paracas Skulls
The elongated skulls of Paracas in Peru caused a stir in 2014 when a geneticist that carried out preliminary DNA testing reported that they have mitochondrial DNA “with mutations unknown in any human, primate, or animal known so far”. Now a second round of DNA testing has been completed and the results are just as controversial – the skulls tested, which date back as far as 2,000 years, were shown to have European and Middle Eastern Origin. These surprising results change the known history about how the Americas were populated. In this interview L.A. Marzulli explains how the tests were carried out and shares his theory about what the results really mean.
