  • The enigmatic alien-like skull was found in 2007 in Olstykke, Denmark by workers who were replacing sewer pipes.

  • Interestingly, only the skull has been recovered, the skeletal remains of the body belonging to the skull have never been unearthed. Some say it is because the skeleton of the mystery being was buried somewhere else.

  • The skull was examined for the first time ever in 2010 at the College of Veterinary Medicine in Denmark. Before that, not a single researcher wanted to examine the skull.

  • Tests results from 2010 revealed that the skull is one of the most mysterious craniums ever tested since experts were unable to explain what species it belonged to.

  • Researchers said that: “Although it resembles a mammal, certain characteristics make it impossible to fit into the Linnaean Taxonomy.”

  • Among the most prominent theories, researchers proposed that the skull may have belonged to a horse, but further tests revealed the skull belongs to an unknown species on Earth.

  • Since no one could shed light on the strange skull, the cranium was sent to the Niels Bohr Institute in Copenhagen. Carbon dating revealed that this mysterious being lived between 1200 and 1280 BC.

  • Hoping to find out more about the skull, researchers excavated the area where the skull was discovered. Among other things, they discovered animal bones, stone axes, and other artifacts that according to researchers originated in the Neolithic period.
