The Sealand Skull is a relatively recent tale. The Skull was first found in 2007 on the little Danish island of Sealand town of lstykke. The guy who found it was a contractor who had been hired to rebuild the property’s aged sewage systems.
The first find was treated with a grain of salt and misinterpreted as a horse’s skull. The property’s previous owner was a horse butcher, and equine bones were said to be buried in the back garden. It wasn’t until the skull was cleaned off that it was fully realized what a discovery it may have been.
The discovery received just a few sentences in the local newspaper at first. Regardless of the skull’s true origins, the fact that it has received so little attention is a mystery in and of itself.
It wasn’t until 2010 that meaningful research was undertaken. Scientists at the College of Veterinary Medicine examined the skull more closely and concluded that the enigma of the skull could not be solved to their – or anyone’s – satisfaction.
They couldn’t even figure out what kind of animal the skull belonged to. They did come to one certain conclusion: despite its resemblance to a mammal, it could not be classified as one by the Linnean Taxonomy due to “certain features.”
After failing to make any more progress, the skull was sent to the Niels Bohr Institute in Copenhagen. Scientists here, like their Veterinarian colleagues, were unable to disclose information about the skull, but they did find one important discovery. The skull was over a thousand years old, according to carbon dating studies.
The entity lived between the years 1200 and 1280, according to estimates. That should be enough to rule out any chance of a fake in terms of authenticity. Further investigations of the location yielded no more artifacts, raising the intriguing issue of where the rest of the skeleton is.
Perhaps the finding of the skull itself holds a clue. Rumor has it that it was discovered above the pipes. Perhaps whoever dumped the skull did it in the previous two decades or so. The skull, along with the yet-to-be-found skeleton, may have been kept in locations as disparate as Paris, Munich, and the Balkans.
Some people believe that’s where the skull originated from in the first place. Residents from previous generations spoke of a Neolithic clan known as L’Ordre Lux P Pégasos, or the Order of Pegasus Light.
These individuals were claimed to be guardians of a number of important things, including a strange skull. Although nothing is known about this organization, it was claimed to have been created in 1350 and to have had renowned figures like Shakespeare, H.G. Wells, and Thomas Jefferson among its members.
When comparing the Sealand Skull to a typical human skull, significant characteristics stand out right once. The Sealand Skull features bigger eye sockets that are deeper set and have a more rounded orbital shape, in addition to being much larger.
The sockets are likewise broader and less centralized than in humans. By contrast, the creature’s nostrils are smaller, and its chin is narrow. The Sealand Skull also has a smooth surface to the touch, which might indicate that it was suited to or habituated to a cooler environment. It was also possible that it had nocturnal tendencies.
As further research on the skull is done, a rising number of people are persuaded that this is the skull of an extraterrestrial biological creature that died millennia ago and was placed here for whatever purpose.
Was it a scout or a colonist from a distant planet, maybe inside the Pegasus constellation? Could it have been a previously undiscovered human species that has escaped research for millennia? If the rest of the skeleton can be found, it will answer a lot of questions… and raise a lot more.
