Quietly, such that I largely missed it, a whole new YouTube genre has sprung up over the past year about how the Central Asian empire of Tartaria was expunged from history, such that the only memory left of it is tartar sauce.
It is the Alzheimer’s of conspiracy theories.
I missed the initial furor generated by Max Igan’s original post last year about this “stolen history” but it has since taken on a life of its own, with Flat Earthers and Mandela Effect aficcionados piling on with claims that the elongated-skull Annunakis caused a worldwide “mud flood” 170 years ago and how the children who inherited the Earth were lied to about their history and that those lies are now our history.
Igan refers to a 1957 CIA document, “NATIONAL CULTURAL DEVELOPMENT UNDER COMMUNISM”, which describes how the Soviet Central Committee in 1944 ordered the Communist Party’s Tartar Provincial Committee to falsify its history.

This is the most topsy turvy revisionist history I’ve ever heard. It’s absolutely bonkers but it’s an interesting thought experiment.
Ancient DNA should either corroborate or disprove such claims and here’s where it gets crazy. As many will recall, when Brien Foerster had the DNA of the elogated-skulls sequenced, the mitochondrial DNA of the 2-year-old red-headed baby from Paracas, estimated to have died 1,950 years ago belonged to haplogoup U2e1, which corresponds to that of proto-Germanic and proto-Balto-Slavic peoples. Another skull from an individual who perished 850 years ago tested with T2b, a mitochondrial DNA that relates to in Eurasian populations…
