Astounding Discovery In Mexico: 13 Individuals With Elongated Skulls Stun Archaeologists, Never Seen Before In Region

(Before It's News)

experts found a cemetery a few thousand years old in the state of
Sonora that has features never seen before in that region and extending
the zone of influence of the Mesoamerican peoples, said archaeologists
from the Institute National Anthropology and History (INAH).

A mere 300 meters from the village of Onavas, southern Sonora, was
an outdoor grave site, the first pre-Hispanic cemetery,of that state
found with burials composed of 25 individuals, 13 of whom have
intentional skull deformation, INAH said in a statement.

Five individuals with cranial deformation also have dental
mutilation. These cultural practices are similar to those of
pre-Hispanic groups in southern Sinaloa and northern Nayarit, but had
not been recorded in Sonora, detailed the Institute.

Some skeletons wore ornaments made from shells and snails found in
the region of the Gulf of California. They were bangles, a nose ring,
earrings, pendants and necklaces of shell beads. Also, an individual was
buried with a turtle shell placed at the height of the abdomen.

The INAH said that the burials were not accompanied by offerings.

For archaeologists, the discovery is relevant evidence of practices
that were not recorded in the old Sonora cultural groups: cranial
deformation (frontal occipital) was applied to 13 individuals, and
modification by the wear of the side of teeth to give them a “V”.

“The area meets the unique finding that mixed expressions of groups
of northern Mexico, as the use of ornaments made from sea shells Sea of
Cortez (Gulf of California), with Western traditions never before found
in Sonoran territory” , said archaeologist Cristina Garcia Moreno.

Garcia, director of the research project, which is conducted by Arizona
State University, USA, with approval of the INAH Archaeology Council,
said: “With this discovery extends the limit of influence of
Mesoamerican peoples farther north: than had been recorded archeology”
by previous archaeological finds.
The archaeologist noted that no other archaeological site in Sonora
have been found where modifications are identified by cranial and denta
mondificationsl, nor have they been seen in the southwestern United
States, which shares the cultural area with Sonora.

“The closest cultural groups who developed these traditions are in
northern Sinaloa and the National Wetlands area (southern Sinaloa and
northern Nayarit), who incorporated their culture some Western customs
and Mesoamerica,” he explained.

However, he said, “Cemetery Onavas not in migratory Mesoamerican
groups, but one who had a sedentary local development and that at some
point in its history established contact with Mesoamerica and
incorporated some ideas into their culture.”

He explained that according to historical sources, the site must
have belonged to the old Pima Indians, the region’s cultural group whose
descendants moved to what is now the Sonora-Chihuahua state line, and
could be part of a settlement located in the area of traffic that
followed the western coastal towns in the southwest U.S. which traded in

“And in that transition, the Pimas adopted new traditions from
Mesoamerica,” he explained, adding that the datings performed on human
remains Epiclassic match the Mesoamerican period (900-1200 AD).

Finally, archaeologist Cristina Garcia noted that these findings are
giving rise to further research in the southeastern part of Sonora that
has been little studied, “the North, the desert, the Northeast and the
coast are the most researched, from these findings it is known that the
southeast is different from what was known, this side is completely
