Grave of an Alien Child or Destined Nobleman Child of Bosporan Warrior?


“The Grave of an Alien,” Burial Site 

In the ancient necropolis of Kyz-Aul in the east of the Crimea, archaeologists unearthed the burial of a child who lived in the 2nd century AD. The researchers called the burial site “the grave of an alien,” the press service of the Archeology Foundation said.

Scientists assume that the child died at the age of 18 months. The child’s skull was seriously deformed as a result of a barbarous procedure that had been performed on the baby.

Destined Warrior, Equestrian Cataphract or Defender of the Kingdom

“It can be possible that the boy was to become a warrior, an equestrian cataphract, a defender of the Bosporan Kingdom,” the report said.

Skull deformities can most often be observed among the Sarmatians, especially of those who lived in the late period. This peculiarity is one of the signs of their identification.

The founder of the Bosporan archeology, Paul Du Brux, discovered the phenomenon of skull deformity in 1826 in necropolises of the Cimmerian Bospor in the Kerch area. It is believed that the deformation of the skull was carried out to designate the affiliation of a person to a certain group of people and demonstrate their social status.

At the same time, supporters of the paleocontact theory believe that such skull deformations serve as irrefutable evidence of contacts with extraterrestrial beings. However, many researchers claim that skull deformities were intentional to make a person more aggressive.

The deformation of the skull was widely spread among the Sarmatians, who were very aggressive and militant people.

Next to the skeleton of the child, archeologists found a molded vessel, small beads of pastel glass and a bracelet of copper alloy.

Destined to be a Military Nobleman of the Bosporan Kingdom

In the layer of the soil, where the “alien” child was found, researchers often come across burial sites from the first century BC till the third century AD. Monumental stone crypts, which are believed to be burial places for the Sarmatian military noble men of the Bosporan Kingdom also refer to the same era.

Here’s a short clip about the Bosporian Kingdom.

      1. Agreed, currently I live in the sports capital of Russia. It’s a much better way to get to know others from around the world. In fact I’ve had an idea that makes sense. How about instead of conscripting individuals into military service that they are required to live in a foreign country as ambassadors to learn and engage with the rest of the world.

  2. I watched the little video – maybe I’m just seeing things today – did anyone else notice on the 1:08 minute point, that in the middle of the battle, one of the shields bears the face of a penguin? Did this people actually go adventuring a lot further than you mentioned, or does an illustrator have a sense of humor?

    1. Interesting interpretation, went and looked and yes it kinda does look like a penguin. But I doubt it was purposeful. But I could be wrong and the illustrator took some liberties.
