Incan bones found in Østfold[Norway]
Aftenposten ^ | 26 June 2007 | Aftenposten

Posted on 06/28/2007 5:56:39 AM PDT by BGHater

Archeologists in Sarpsborg have found one thousand year old skeletal remains that appear to be Incan.

The skeletal remains were found during conservations work at St. Nicolas church in Sarpsborg, a city 73 kilometers (45 miles) southeast of Oslo, NRK (Norwegian Broadcasting) reports.

When archeologists were to move some rose bushes they made the surprising discovery of the remains of two older men and a baby.

"When we were about to take hold under the rose bush the skeletal remains slid out. It was quite surprising," Mona Beate Buckholm, archeologist at the Borgarsyssel Museum, told NRK.

One of the skulls had characteristics that indicate he was an Inca, the South American people centered in Peru.

"There is a bone in the neck that hasn't grown and this is an inherited characteristic only found among Inca Indians in Peru. This is sensational," Buckholm said.

The archeologists now plan to try and find out what the man was doing in Østfold, and how he came there.

Incan ping

Could be a mistake, or a genetic disease that is throwing off the examination.

Could be a mutation caused by bad lutefisk.

I can see some Norsk archaeologist bringing his work home with him. His unappreciative wife made him bury it. LOL

I guess the saucer guys from Nazca put him back down in the wrong spot. He did say he came from the land where white powder covered the ground. Or is he the reason for the Vikeing Berserkers - they turn out to be cokeheads on a jag.

He was not an Inca (they weren’t even around 1000 years ago).

He was a Hekawi.
