Alien guest. In the Chelyabinsk region found the skeleton of a strange

During excavations on the territory of the reserve “Arkaim” was found a skeleton with a skull of unusual elongated shape. Version about the ownership of the remains of the alien is gaining more and more fans.

A fortified settlement Arkaim in the Chelyabinsk region belongs to the middle bronze age to the turn of III—II Millennium BC Here intact preserved historic landscape, including ancient fortifications and mounds synchronous.

Arkaim was built with four strictly oriented to the cardinal entrances; all circles have the same center where radial lines converge. This layout, as some researchers believe, is a model of the Universe, and supporters of different esoteric and UFO theories attributed to this area of anomalous properties, comparing it with the British Stonehenge.

Time to look for aliens

In 2015, the expedition party Makarova from the reserve “Arkaim” conducts research on the burial ground “Pandesara-6” in Kizilskoe the area. The group entered the reserve staff, volunteers, students and schoolchildren. In one of the mounds had been cleared the tomb of a woman who lived in the II—III centuries a Distinctive osobennostyakh body is unnaturally elongated head.

Archaeologists believe that the deceased belonged to a nomadic tribe, the Sarmatians. For them, in particular, was characterized by compressing the heads of infants plate, tied with a rope, which led to deformation of the skull. The exact cause of this barbaric custom is not known; we consider two versions: the ability to distinguish self from other, but also a kind of aesthetic criteria Sarmatians.

Excavations on the territory of the ancient settlement have been conducted since 1987, and since then, along with the archaeologists, their versions about the origin of Arkaim nominate everyone. Some believe that the city was used as an Observatory; the psychics here we go to “recharge” from the powerful flow of energy; interested in Indian Vedic directions believe that Arkaim is the birthplace of Zoroaster, and ufologists have no doubt that the settlement appeared because of the aliens. The latest theory now got “proof”. Video from the scene of the excavations at Arkaim thanks to the Western media became widely known as “discovery of the remains of an alien”.

The length of skull shape ufologists “identified” so-called “grey alien” creature with a large forehead and big eyes (they are often shown in sci-Fi movies). Explanation of archeologists about the strange customs of the ancient tribes sensational statements lost.
