Archaeologists in Mexico have unearthed ancient skeletons and skulls at a dig site near the village of Onavas. The skeletons are estimated to be about 1,000 years old. One of the skulls has a cone-like shape from cranial disfiguration. The skulls on some of the other skeletons also show signs of intentional cranial deformation and dental disfigurements. The archaeologists say human heads were bound with wooden supports in order to alter their shape.
