When images of the remains were first published, UFO enthusiasts rushed to claim they were proof that aliens had once visited Earth. But archaeologists have revealed that the bones belong to a woman who lived almost 2,000 years ago and had an elongated skull because it was bound out of tribal tradition.

The discovery of a spectacular humanoid shape skeleton with an alien skull has sparked fresh revelations that mankind was once visited by aliens. When pictures of the humanoid figure with the egg-shaped skull from a site known as Russia's Stonehenge were first published recently, UFO watchers rushed to insist it was proof that aliens had once visited Earth. Archaeologist however insist that the skeleton which belonged to a female from a 4,000 BC settlement had a skull that was elongated because the tribe which had lived in Arkaim near the Monday city of Chelyabinsk in central Russia used to bind the head to make it grow out of shape. However UFO watchers claim that if this was the case, it was simply a way of mimicking the elongated skulls of the humans alien visitors and this proved once again of alien visitation. What is not in doubt is that the skull was significantly elongated and according to the experts belonged to a woman who was in the tribe that was part of what is now modern day Ukraine. Researcher Maria Makurova has confirmed to the Russian news agency TASS: "We have found a well preserved skeleton. I would not exclude the possibility that the skeleton belongs to a woman from the Sarmati trible that lived in the territories of what is now modern day Ukraine, Kazakhstan and southern Russia. "Her skull was elongated because the tribe did so by tying up the heads of their children with rope. It was clearly a tradition in the tribe." She declined to comment on speculation it was attributed to alien visitors saying that currently they were still working on theories as to why the tribe had tradition but had nothing fixed. It is just another of the mysteries of the spectacular site known as Russia's Stonehenge which is believed was built around 4,000 BC along the same lines as the British monument from where it was possible to make studies of the stars. Indeed the Russian version if anything is more advanced because while at Stonehenge it's long been known that the monument was built with astronomical observation in mind - and where it allowed for observations of 10 astronomical phenomena using 22 elements, Arkaim allows for observations of 18 phenomena using 30 elements. This essentially means that certain events in the sky could be observed and tracked by using the site in particular ways, and from different positions, and that Arkaim offered more observable events than Stonehenge. According to Russian archaeologist K.K. Bystrushkin Stonehenge offers an observational accuracy of 10-arc minutes to a degree, whereas Arkaim offers accuracy of 1-arc minute. This precision is unheard of in the time frame allowed, and was only surpassed by that documented in the Almagest of ancient Greece some 2000 years later. This is being used as further proof that Stonehenge and Akraim were linked to beings from the stars. Scientists who exposed the photographs of the latest spectacular discovery of the alien -looking humanoid say they believe that the body was actually comparatively recent compared to the age of the site, and was probably from the second or third century after Christ. The Akraim archaeological site was discovered in 1987 and it appeared to be an important site to study Bronze Age, and since then has yielded spectacular discoveries. As well as being a primitive astronomical observatory it was also a village that was fortified by two large stone circular walls.  The settlement covers an area of some 220,000sq-ft and consists of two circles of dwellings separated by a street, with a central community square in the center. (ends)

The remains were found in Arkaim, near Chelyabinsk in central Russia – a settlement dating back almost 4,000 years. It is believed the woman belonged to a tribe that was part of what is now modern day Ukraine.

The skeleton is thought to date to the second or third century AD, making it considerably younger than the site. It is just another of the mysteries to be unearthed at the spectacular site of Arkaim known as Russia’s Stonehenge, which is believed to have been built in the 17th century BC. It is believed by some that, like its 5,000-year-old English counterpart, it was used to study of the stars. But Arkaim is thought to be more advanced.

Stonehenge allows for observations of 10 astronomical phenomena using 22 elements, while Arkaim enables observations of 18 phenomena using 30 elements. This means that ancient people could have observed and tracked certain events in the sky by using the site in certain ways from particular positions, and that Arkaim offered more observable events than Stonehenge.

Russian archaeologist KK Bystrushkin, who made the comparison between the two sites in 2003, said Stonehenge offers an observational accuracy of 10-arc minutes to a degree, whereas Arkaim offers accuracy of one-arc minute.

This precision was unheard of at the time the monument is thought to have been built. The Akraim archaeological site was discovered in 1987 and since then it has yielded spectacular discoveries including some artefacts from the Bronze Age.

As well as being a primitive astronomical observatory it was also a village that was fortified by two large stone circular walls. The settlement covers an area of some 220,000 square feet (20,439 square metres) and consists of two circles of dwellings separated by a street, with a central community square in the centre.
