Yes, those are some “pointed-headed” skulls people carry on about. They do exist in reality, but reality has a way of getting in the way of fun and speculation. Check out this excellent article on Paleobabble’s blog http://michaelsheiser.com/PaleoBabble/2011/11/the-peruvian-alien-skull/ . Deformed skulls are a great props and gaffs because they cut into a primal fear of defective birth. The second great fear of antiquity was that exposed infants would survive to return. The only great fear was the return of the dead. Hey that’s three supreme primal fears at one time.
This reminds me of one of the skulls from Quatermass and the Pit.
