The mysterious Paracas people of the coast of Peru who were the principal makers of the Nazca Lines and Geoglyphs had elongated heads that academics insist were the result of the head binding of the infants of the nobility. New scientific, medical and genetic tests show that in fact these people were originally born with elongated heads and were not aboriginal people of Peru whose ancestors crossed the Bering land bridge with other Native Americans. But newly found evidence shows that the mysterious Paracas people likely migrated from Eurasia around 3000 years ago. And with further studies, we have discovered the largest elongated skulls in the world are to be found in Eurasia and the coast of Peru, and they are genetically related and from the same time period. Morphological examination of the skulls indicates that they are so different from Homo sapiens, that they were a distinct subspecies able to breed with regular ancient humans of Peru.
