Verifying the Provenance: The Starchild Project began in 1999 when Ray and Melanie Young contacted Lloyd Pye and asked him to investigate an unusual skull that had come into their possession.
The person who first recovered the Starchild Skull passed away in the 1990s, making the story of its discovery in situ heresy. She never pinpointed the exact location where she found the skulls, and claimed that the other bones were washed away in a flash flood, making finding the burial place, or recovery of any other bones, unlikely. However, the staining on the skulls matches the story that Ray and Melanie were told, as does the silicate encrustation on the skulls. But whether the story is true or not, the fact remains that the Starchild Skull is real, and unlike anything previously found on Earth.
Provenance (History) Of The Starchild Skull:
known history of the Starchild Skull begins in the 1930s, when
an American teenage girl was on vacation with her family near
Mexico's Copper Canyon region. She went exploring alone and
found a long-abandoned mine tunnel. Inside it she found a full
human skeleton lying on its back. Beside it was a grave-like
mound of dirt with an arm bone sticking out of the dirt and the
hand bones wrapped around the upper arm bone of the skeleton
lying on the surface. Using her hands she dug the buried
skeleton out of its shallow grave.
The woman died in the early 1990s, and in 1998 the two skulls were given to Ray and Melanie Young of El Paso, Texas. Melanie, a neonatal nurse and physical therapist who understood that the "misshapen" skull was in no way the result of a typical human deformity. She was determined to have it expertly evaluated to find out what it really was. To do that, she and her husband Ray enlisted the help of Lloyd Pye, an author and researcher in the field of alternative knowledge, who became the skull's caretaker and research coordinator.
Lloyd Pye became Director of the Starchild Project in February of 1999, and in the course of the past twelve years has overseen the scientific testing of the skull in three countries (the US, Canada, and England). While doing that he has regularly informed the media and the public about those results, and he continues to oversee ongoing research that will lead to an ultimate definitive conclusion about the unusual skull.
