16 September 2011 Named as ‘One of the Greatest Drives in Britain’ by the AA, The A686, which runs from Penrith, through Alston (across the ‘roof’ of England) and down onto the A69 just after Haydon Bridge, is very popular particularly in the summer with bikers, and is great fun to drive. We found this road by pure chance as we were driving to Thirsk and decided to take this route through the Moors.Starting at Stokesley the road literally cuts through the left side of The North Yorkshire Moors and is a great drive with some fantastic views.The pack contains the prepaid service vouchers, maps, discount vouchers and brochures to local attractions, plus a detailed daily explanation of driving routes, including suggested stops en route.Today there is a daytrip planned to the bird sanctuary on Tiri Tirimatangi Island.These have come to be known as the ‘ Paracas skulls ’.
You then drive on for a further 13 miles through sweeping bends and lots of gradient changes, again with great views and road, until you arrive at the picturesque village of Helmsley.
A DNA analysis has now been conducted on one of the skulls and expert Brien Foerster has released preliminary information regarding these enigmatic skulls.
It is well-known that most cases of skull elongation are the result of cranial deformation, head flattening, or head binding, in which the skull is intentionally deformed by applying force over a long period of time.
Paracas is a desert peninsula located within the Pisco Province in the Inca Region, on the south coast of Peru.
It is here were Peruvian archaeologist, Julio Tello, made an amazing discovery in 1928 – a massive and elaborate graveyard containing tombs filled with the remains of individuals with the largest elongated skulls found anywhere in the world.
