The general opinion seems to be that they are human but are not the result of medical deformation and are too anomalous to be the result of
"binding" techniques. In addition, some of the skulls have brain vault capacities significantly in excess of modern man.
|The skull is Thought to be 1.8 million years old
By Robert Parsons
in Dmanisi, Georgia
The moment is indelibly burned into Dato Zhvania's memory.
It had been a day like any other - a day of back-breaking,
painstakingly meticulous work. A day of throbbing, enervating heat.
But as he sifted gingerly through the baked patch of ground before
him, his fingers touched something different.
The team celebrates their find
His pulse quickened.
The archaeological site at the medieval town of Dmanisi, 80
kilometres (50 miles) south-west of the Georgian capital, Tbilisi,
had already revealed some of its secrets.
Perhaps, just perhaps, this was his turn.
But what emerged as he brushed away the earth was to far exceed
He did not know it yet, but in his hands he held the almost perfectly
preserved skull of the most ancient human being ever found in
Europe - 1.8 million years old.
More extraordinary still, it was about to throw into question all
accepted theories about the migration of our ancestors out of Africa.
Dato could not contain his excitement.
A message was sent out to team leader, Davit Lortkipanidze, a
paleoanthropologist at the Georgian State Museum in Tbilisi.
The media were alerted and Dato and his colleagues prepared to
"The first thing we did was pool together all the money we had -
around about $800. Then we drove around all the villages for miles
around and bought every bottle of champagne we could find."
He shakes his head and smiles to himself at the memory.
We were standing at the spot where the skull had been found, deep
beneath the foundations of the medieval town.
"And you know," he said, "this site is so big and so important that
what we've found so far could be nothing compared with what still
lies beneath the ground."
The remains of seven individuals have been found at Dmanisi - the
most recent this summer - but what made this discovery so special
was that it did not look like the skull of any human ever found
outside Africa before.
Its brain cavity was far smaller - half the size of a modern human -
and it had the huge canine teeth and thin brow of an ape.
The skull variation may force us to rethink the definition Homo
This was not the tall, upright, big-brained Homo erectus we had
assumed the first humans to leave Africa to have been.
This guy was short, long-armed and probably trailed his knuckles
along the ground.
Not only that, the tools found around him were basic choppers and
cutters, just like those found at the sites of early, primitive men in
Dato Lortkipanidze thought he recognised Homo habilis, a hominid
with a close resemblance to an ape.
But what was he doing in Georgia? The theory had always been that
the migration out of Africa had only happened with the evolution of
big brains and the development of the tools and hunting skills to
make the exodus possible.
Homo habilis: The first species in the genus Homo, dating back 1.9
million years, and found only in Africa
Homo erectus: The first species in the genus Homo to leave Africa
The discovery has opened so many questions about our ancestry
that one scientist quipped: "They ought to put it back into the
Another unusual aspect of the Dmanisi find is that it was discovered
in the same layer of sediment as other hominids with substantially
larger brains - Homo erectus.
Mr Lortkipanidze suggests the variation may force us to rethink the
Land of origins
The old town of Dmanisi sits atop a promontory formed by the
confluence of the Mashavera and Pinezauri rivers.
Today, it is a picnic spot for visitors from Tbilisi who come to see the
ruins of the early medieval church and castle.
Dmanisi was once an important stopping point on the Silk Route
Modern Dmanisi is a short drive away and just a small village, but
this was once an important stopping point on the Silk Route - a
trading centre between Byzantium and Persia.
When I stood on the battlements above the church, I could easily
make out the road the camels used to take and the steam baths
once used by the traders.
It is a place of steep slopes and whispering winds, of forests and
basalt cliffs, but to the north a plateau of cultivated fields stretches
away to the horizon.
This was once savannah - home to rhinoceros, game and
sabre-tooth tigers. Perfect hunting ground for hungry hominids.
Gazing out across this scene 1.8 million years after our ancestors
stumbled out of Africa, I spotted a group of Georgian villagers
cheering on a wrestling match amidst the ruins - a reminder that
strife has been the defining characteristic of our existence ever
But for Europeans, Dmanisi is a reminder of something else too.
This, it seems, is where our history began. Dmanisi recalls our

UFO Digest, May 1999
The movie Stargate has become a popular video cassette rental. Its feature film release was met with disappointing
reviews, however, a sort of cult following has ensued as people have started discovering the movie by word of mouth.
It deals with a touchy subject... Aliens that visited Earth thousands of years ago. I learned about the film from the
company that was producing a CD ROM about the movie called The Secrets of Stargate.
The associate producer of the CD ROM, Joel Mills, had learned that I had in my possession photographs that could
prove that the movie Stargate was based on historical fact.
They wanted to include copies of the photographs of the "unusual giant skulls" that my wife (Bea) and I had collected
over the past five years. It seems that the movie deals with the theory that extra terrestrials had used humans as slaves
to mine metal in Egypt thousands of years ago.
Mills felt these giant skulls were proof that the ancient pharaohs had the same elongated skulls hidden under their
crown head-dress, and that, in fact, the Coneheads of Saturday Night Live are based on fact, not fiction.
I pointed out to him that Egypt's King Akhenaton and his daughters were proud of their distinct features (elongated
skulls) and the true facts of this royal family are shrouded in controversy. Some historians point out that the giant skulls
of this family are a deformity caused by inbreeding. Others discount this and claim that it is the art style of the Armana
The secret society known as the Rosicrucians place King Akhenaton on their highest pedestal by reconstructing his
statue and main temple at their head office in San Jose, California.
Mills also asked permission to use photographs of giant skulls that I had obtained while filming at the Nasca lines in
Peru. Although Stargate did not deal with a Peruvian connection, he felt the world needed to see the photographs to
understand that ancient skulls of extraordinary dimensions could be found at other major archaeological sites around
the world, in particular, the Nasca Line and the ruins of Peru.... in the shadows of the Cheops pyramids in Egypt... and
the ancient Mayan ruins of Central America... The Triangle of the Ancient Gods.
I was happy to send him the photos but warned him that the photos would probably be too controversial fo the general
public. He seemed surprised at this comment and wondered why he hadn't seen pictures like this before. The
complicated answer took a great deal of time to explain! I will try to encapsulate this answer and relate to you a brief
history of these unusual skulls.
I first came across drawings of the skulls in a book by Ignatius Donnelly called Atlantis, The Antedeluvian World. The
author tries to prove that at one time there existed a Continent in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean that sank into the sea.
Before it sank, the rulers left for Egypt, Mexico and Peru and became rulers of these countries.
He found information about these skulls hidden in the Library of Congress in Washington. I had learned from the
Peruvian government that these unusual skulls could be found in many museums in Peru and excavations were
uncovering them even now near the Nasca Plateau.
I had read Erich Von Daniken's Chariots of the Gods? and remembered his theories of ancient astronauts landing in
this desert area.
A few years ago, we were invited to film and photograph these skulls and other discoveries that Peruvian
archaeologists are currently unearthing. These skulls are so numerous in the area of the Nasca desert that you can
find small makeshift museums in the backyards of the locals. They dug up their ancestors so you can view their
remains for a small fee.
Some skulls show the evidence of ancient brain surgery that prove their ancestors possessed certain abilities that
modern science has just recently discovered.
Stunned, we wondered why we had not seen photographs of these skulls before. Our guides explained their church
leaders feel these skulls are the work fo the devil, the offspring of the fallen angels in the Bible.
In Mexico we found the same types of skulls in a museum in Merida, a city close to the ruins of Palenque. Lord Shield
Pascal had the same elongated skull, an image which is found engraved on his tomb. Erich Von Daniken has
described the drawings as Pascal sitting in a rocket ship.
The conquering Spaniards found the natives deforming their heads to make them appear more "god like" and the
priests declared them devil worshippers.
Mean while in Egypt, King Akhenaton was also regarded as a heretic and all information about this king was obliterated
until just recently.
These finding prove that the rulers of these advanced societies all shared the common bond of huge skulls and brains
that probably provided them with superior intelligence.
This information has been shared by secret societies and religious leaders for hundreds of years and up until now they
had decided to keep these secrets for themselves.
All who first see the pictures feel... "They show proof of beings from another world." It seems that these conclusions
were deemed to be too shocking for the average person and that these skulls were to be dismissed as deformities
and hidden far from public view. That is, until President Fujimori took power in Peru. He had decided to allow the skulls
to be photographed and has brought them to the attention of the world.
Resistance to publishing the photographs has remained, and there appears to be a world wide cover-up of the skulls
true origins. The only answers seems to be that public knowledge of "Fallen Angels" or ancient astronauts would
disrupt society and the world's religions.
I told Joel Mills he would probably face the same struggle to get the photos published in the CD ROM, just as we have
encountered with the various news media.
He felt sure that the time was here and now to wake up the world, and that the movie Stargate was just the beginning. I
wished him luck and success with the idea and sent him all the material I had in my possession to document the facts
he needed. Several months passed and then one day he phoned to tell me he had left the CD ROM production team
and that none of the skull photographs would be included in The Secrets of Stargate.
After several run-ins with executives in Hollywood, the pictures were deemed to be unsuitable for inclusion in The
Secrets of Stargate
. He was much happier with his new job promoting a public speaker that teaches the history and wisdom of ancient
Egypt and again asked for permission to use the photographs, but this time for private presentations only. He had
learned first hand about the powers that have kept these pictures hidden from the public.
|A Pygmy Homo Race.
3 Million Years Old
The Essington [Oberon] NSW mineralised [ironstone] partly mummified skull.
This small hominid skull, although lacking a rear brain case due to crushing through burial beneath a heavy overlying
strata, displays surviving features of a remarkable 'modern' appearance, such as a vertical forehead and face.
There does not seem to have been projecting eyebrow ridges and there is a long 'modern' nose. Mummified skin
covers most of the face, and a patch of skin has detached itself from the left side of the nose to cover the left eye
socket, suggesting the hominid may have already been dead and decomposing at the time of its initial preservation.
The left side of the head has been crushed inwards flattening the cheekbone, although this is present on the right
side of the specimen. The teeth of the upper jaw have been broken away and the lower jaw crushed, revealing adult
teeth. Mud and small gravels have filled the skull's interior. Mineralised mud and gravels cover the rear of the skull.
The specimen was initially covered by a deposit of volcanic ash and mud during an eruption that was responsible for
the rapid preservation of the tissue. As volcanic disturbances in the Oberon region ceased in late Pliocene times, this
suggests the specimen to be around 3 million years old.
The skull/mummified head is 14cm in height by 9cm across the facial section by 8cm thick in its incomplete state.
The hominid's height is estimated to have been about 84cm.
The 'modern' features of this specimen suggest a pygmy-size race of Homo that evolved around late Pliocene times,
The fossil was unearthed by Mrs Joy Colley about 1995 and donated to the Rex Gilroy Natural Science collection.
Since then two further specimens, recovered by Rex Gilroy at sites in Qld suggest all three skull-types may be related.
