The Mayan dynasties of ancient Mexico built pyramids aligned to the stars. Just like the ancient Egyptians the Mayans also mummified their dead. The Mayans claim their vast knowledge of astronomy was given to them by a reptilian star-god. Many Mayan artefacts feature reptilian motifs and tongues of lizards. Many Mayan figurines hold buckets known as Situlas. They hold the DNA in the ‘Water of Life’. Some carvings show humanoids with elongated skulls like aliens. Just like ancient Egyptians, the Mayans buried their elite in Sarcophagus enclosures. Chris Everard, Secret Space II

The small skeletons with alien-shaped skulls were discovered in 1938. The skeletons were in graves on the floor of caves which had walls covered in star-map pictograms. The graves were laid out in geometric lines. Amongst these graves hundreds of circular stone plates were discovered which had spiral etchings on them. Each stone disc was approximately nine inches in diameter, and had a fine groove spiralling out from the centre to the rim. Making each disc look like a prehistoric version of a modern vinyl record. In all 716 stone plates were found. These became known as the Dzopa stones. ibid.

Tutankhamun [the son of Akhenaten] was also found with an elongated skull. ibid.
