2000 Year Old Red Haired Elongated Skull Paracas PeruThe elongated skull of a 20 month old baby from Paracas Peru that died 2000 years ago was unwrapped under supervision 2 years ago.

DNA testing of the baby Paracas was conducted in the Lakehead University lab in Canada, as well as perhaps one or two other labs in the United States. The results that came back showed only one discernible haplogroup present, that of U2e1.
