DNA Results For The Elongated Skulls Of Paracas: Part 2 Of 4: La Oroya

Share This Article

In part 1, with link HERE if you have not read it, we learned that the baby Paracas shown above to the right, who died 1950 years ago was of haplogroup U2e1, which is found in proto-Germanic and proto-Balto-Slavic peoples .

The second skull tested, the one on the left above is in a private collection in the US, and was taken out of Peru by an American physician, likely in the 1930s, prior to the Peru government banning export of pre-Colombian materials. It came from an area called La Oroya, east of Lima, but its origins are unknown. It is estimated to have died 850 years ago according to radiocarbon tests.


As the above map indicates, all people of Native American heritage had ancestors of Haplogroups A, B, C, D and possibly X, while the only haplogroup found in the La Oroya skull was T2b, which is European. Like the baby, the La Oroya skull does not fit in with the standard Native American migration model.


The broader T2 haplogroup is found only in Europeans and some Middle Eastern areas, and NOT in Eastern Asia. Thus, we now have DNA from 2 ancient Peruvian people whose ancestry, at least in part comes from Europe, long before the Spanish arrived in the 1500s AD.


More specifically, T2b is found only in the British Isles area, the Baltic states and parts of Scandinavia! Thus, the human migration story of South America will have to be rewritten. And there are 2 more DNA updates to come, with equally shocking results!
