In 1942, hundreds of human skeletal remains have been found in a lake deep in the Himalayas as well as mind-boggling expertise. The name “Skeleton Lake, “” the site, which has been shrouded in mystery for decades, and the lure of new DNA analysis of the bones. The research, however, has led to some surprising results.
Roopkund Lake is 16,499 feet) above sea level in the Indian Himalayan mountains, and the skeletons found there were thought to have been the victim of an ancient catastrophic event, the scientists say.
The results of the research have been published in the journal Nature Communications.
THE MASS CHILD SACRIFICE SITE, WHICH WILL UNVEIL ITS HORRIFIC SECRETS
“Very little is known about the origin of these skeletons, such as they have never been subjected to systematic, anthropological, and archaeological research, in part due to the disturbed nature of the site, which is regularly affected by rockslides, and is often visited by the local pilgrims, and for those who have to manipulate the skeleton, and away from a lot of the artifacts,” the international team of researchers explain in their study.

The grisly site, which has also become part of local legend. “The local folklore describes it as a pilgrimage to a nearby shrine for the mountain goddess, Nanda Devi, who is a king and queen and many attendants, who because of their inappropriate party behavior have been hard-hit by the wrath of the [nearby mountain] Nanda Devi,” the scientists explained. “It has also been suggested that these are the remnants of an army, or a group of traders who have been caught up in a storm. After all, it has been suggested that they were the victims of an epidemic.”
Scientists have sequenced the genomes of 38 skeletons at the Roopkund Lake, revealing some surprising results. While the 23 origin, typical of the South-east Asia, 14 in the eastern Mediterranean sea. One person has been found to be in the South-east Asian origin.
SACRIFICE OF THE VICTIMS IS DISCOVERED IN A GHASTLY OLD SITE
“We were very surprised by the genetics of the Roopkund skeleton,” said lead author Éadaoin Especially at Harvard University, in a statement released by the German Max Planck Institute, who has also been involved in the investigation. “The presence of a person with an origin that is typically associated with the eastern Mediterranean, suggesting that the Roopkund Lake is not only a site of local importance, but are, instead, attracted visitors from all over the world.”

Diet analysis confirmed the skeletal remains of a variety of origins. “Stable isotope diet reconstruction from the skeletal remains is also compatible with the presence of various groups of people,” explained Max-Planck-Institute.
In addition, the result found that the remains are of a very different era. All traces of South Asian origin, have been dated to around 800 bc as with the other skeletal remains were analyzed and dated to around 1800 B. c. “These findings refute earlier suggestions that the skeletons of Roopkund Lake, were deposited in a single cataclysmic event,” the scientists explain, Nature Communications.
CRUSADER SKELETON DISCOVERY SHEDS NEW LIGHT ON THE CRUSADES
“It is not yet clear what made these people Roopkund Lake, or how she died,” said Niraj Rai, of the Birbal Sahni Institute of Palaeosciences in Lucknow, India, at the Max Planck Institute in a statement. “We hope that this study provides the first analysis of this enigmatic site.
