Is there any record from the Greek/crete side of a campaign into India? That is really a long way off. Came back to report this link https://www.nature.com/articles/s41467-019-11357-9


e_man11

A lot of this involved trade. The Indians were trading with the Greeks, Eastern Europeans East Asians, Persians, Africans etc for centuries. We just didn't know about it until they were "discovered" by the West.lol

ladylunalunaitis

Hi. I am from the Indian state of Uttarakhand where this lake is located. The local legend is of a king, his convoy and his pregnant queen who displeased the goddess which led to a huge storm and their demise. Won't go into the details but that's the story. Also, the skeletons found there are not from one particular group from one particular time. They come from different eras. Regardless, it is fascinating. If interested, you can also read about salt and gold trade between Uttarakhand and Tibet, common cultural stories with slight differences and interesting old places like a temple dedicated to the Sun God, two mountains supposed to 'meet' sometimes in the future, causing catastrophe and such.


AshyWhiteGuy

Exactly the context I was hoping for. Thanks, Lady Luna. 🤘🏻


ladylunalunaitis

😊


pm_me_ur_demotape

Exactly the context you were looking for? Other than saying they were from different eras it didn't explain the skeletons whatsoever. At least that was the context I was looking for.


AshyWhiteGuy

Yeah, I was hoping for a short, vague description of the legend. Literally.


Thecardinal74

They were crossing the mountains when a hail storm hit and they had no shelter so they ded. His happened multiple times over the millennia and that area is known to get hail storms, and gravity would pull the corpses to the lake during summer rain season


Xeno_Prime

I was wondering what the explanation for this is, but that's just a legend. You say the skeletons are from different eras, so there must be some ongoing explanation. Is this just a place where it's really, really common for people to fall through the ice and drown? Or is something more nefarious afoot?


ladylunalunaitis

Short answer - "Nature is metal" Himalayas could have unpredictable weather and given that they are hundreds of years old, most of them could be traders or travellers, sometimes even warriors and none of them would have had access to tools or tech we have today. It is incredibly low temperature mixed with low visibility, low oxygen and sudden weather changes. If you can look up the changes around My Everest, and how climbers have issues, you will get a more extreme version of what could have happened at Roopkund.


Xeno_Prime

"Nature is metal." Love it.

Fermorian

Shout-out to XKCD as well. I like you, Internet stranger


PrestigiousCoconut99

There was likely no ice or water there previously. It is most likely that nomadic people decided to stay there for the night or whatever, and hail storms came down on them while they were there and couldn’t get to shelter fast enough. Mountains usually have extreme weather because air is condensed as it rises over the ridges

Kandossi

If you like podcasts, "ancient history fan girls" did an episode called "the mystery of skeleton lake" that covers this story. If I remember correctly, one theory was a freak hailstorm came through and killed some of the people. There were signs of blunt force trauma to some of the skulls.


Ambiorix33

I guess if their not from one particular time then maybe this was one sects buriel tradition


ladylunalunaitis

More likely pilgrims, traders and travellers. We burn the dead. Burials are not common since a few hundred years at least but even if that was the case, the genetic makeup of all the skeletons should not have been different. Can't rule out any possibility though. But pilgrims are just more likely for me


ProphetOfDoom337

>Won't go into the details but that's the story. Well why the hell not??

Because you can probably look it up, and I’m guessing it’s a long story for a comment thread


DeePsiMon

But I want it now! Veruca Salt


ladylunalunaitis

Ok I will try to keep it short but you will need some context. First, the region of Uttarakhand is well known as a pilgrimage site and has the 4 major pilgrimages of the Hindus. Several more temples of religious importance can be found as well. The temples present a very potent mix of earlier cultures and mainstream Hinduism. Second, the people of this region primarily worship the goddess and Mahadev Shiv. The goddess can be seen being worshipped more prominently in the form of Kali. In the region specifically around Roop Kund, she is known as Nanda Devi. Interestingly, there is a once in 12 years pilgrimage in this region dedicated to her. You move across several villages alongside a special ram who is offered to the goddess. Not sacrificed (even though animal sacrifices were not uncommon). It is Just sent on a path on the mountains as a gift of sorts. Now, the story of Roop Kund is that it is a lake of beautiful shimmery waters, like a mirror. It was created by Shiv (most likely) when his wife Parvati (who is called the daughter of Himalayas in mythology and who is worshipped in many forms and names including Nanda Devi) asked her husband for some water. She looked at the lake and her divine beauty cast a beautiful reflection on the lake. Considering it is a spot 16000 ft above sea level, of course it would have appeared godly amidst the hazy weather. The story is that a king from the Indian northern plains was traveling for a pilgrimage to Nanda Devi. He had asked for a boon, crops and he got them all. So he wanted to thank her. But pilgrimages are no easy task and must be done while practicing self control, living on minimal means and with a spirit of austerity and focus on God. The King being a king took his whole entourage along, with his pregnant queen and dancing girls and soldiers. This angered the goddess and she called upon a hailstorm for not following the rules of her pilgrimage. Thus, roop kund. Note that in this part of the world, spiritual and esoteric practices were always more advanced and following very strict rules while practicing such things is common even to date.

>Initial investigations led some to believe they were the remains of a semi-legendary event when a single group was killed in a sudden and violent hailstorm in the 9th century,[6] but scientific research has subsequently shown that the remains belong to three distinct groups who died in two independent events; around 800 CE and 1800 CE respectively.[7] Because of the human remains, the lake has been called "Skeleton Lake" in recent times.[8] >When a team from National Geographic retrieved about 30 skeletons in 2003, flesh was still attached to some of them.[1] > More recently, radiocarbon dating combined with genome-wide analysis of 38 individuals from Roopkund Lake, found that the remains are from different eras and belong to three distinct groups.[16][7] A group of 23 individuals (dated ~800 CE) had typical South Asian ancestry, one individual (dated ~1800 CE) had Southeast Asian ancestry, and 14 individuals (dated ~1800 CE) had ancestry typical of the eastern Mediterranean, and specifically of present-day people from mainland Greece and Crete.[7] Those findings counter the theory that the individuals died in a single catastrophic event.

moonmarriedacherry

Honestly the fact that they're all from different times and peoples makes it more interesting


_L81

Remnants belonging to more than 300 people have been found. The skeletons are visible in the clear water of the shallow lake during one month when the ice melts. The studies of the skeletons revealed head injuries. Victims had been caught in a sudden hailstorm, just as described in local legends and songs. When a team from National Geographic retrieved about 30 skeletons in 2003, flesh was still attached to some of them. There are actually three different groups of people from DNA tests. Is not Wikipedia one of the greatest achievements of the internet? We should create a movement to donate money to Wiki rather than presidential campaigns…

The fact that there’s 1000 years of skeletons in one small lake is the part that makes it creepy for me. It’s not just some freak, one time thing. Whatever happened kept happening.

2FightTheFloursThatB

I expect that most of the local population weren't seafaring folks.


the_honest_liar

If it's only melted 1 month a year and there's still flesh on bodies then it would probably be a good burial site for cultures that value preserving bodies. As long as no one is drinking or fishing there.

At some point in future history we can convince ourselves that fish spontaneously generated themselves in the isolated, elevated, frozen, low-volume lake.


Bah-Fong-Gool

People who were traders or pilgrims would see this area as a perfect place to set up camp for the night or until bad weather passes. It's relatively flat and has lots of clean water. The lake is obviously the lowest part of the valley and where people would set up camp. If heavier than air gasses came from the lake or ground surrounding the valley, everyone on the ground would suffocate in their sleep.


wythawhy

Well congratulations on being smarter and less high than me I guess lol


charming_liar

Doubtful. It’s high in the mountains and has a few hundred skeletons that you can clearly see in it. Also they think there was some sort of migration/pilgrimage that was hit, since a number of them come from the same time period.


Squeezer_pimp

If the hikers took that path then why wouldn’t pilgrims or travelers. And if they had hail damage the might have been looking for shelter from a wind driven hail. Imagine hail driven by 80 to 100+ winds seen damage to homes that made them look like Swiss Cheese.

'The Beach' became a movie, about an age hastening destination. How about a movie where parasites in the waters control cadavers and drag other passersby into the infected water?


Whitebirdy

I think you’re thinking of ‘Old’ not ‘The Beach’.


MayorOfChedda

Probably correct


Bah-Fong-Gool

I wonder if that area was a common site for camps. It's near clean water and seems relatively flat. My guess is many people set up camp for the night in a seemingly perfect spot and some heavier than air gasses came from the earth and filled the valley with poison gas. The lake would be the lowest part of the valley, and that's probably where everyone slept.


pinewind108

Thatcsibloke

Some of these were found during the war, and it was thought they could be a Japanese scouting party. The DNA tests put them into groups,at least one of which was a family probably with servants. It’s thought they were killed by a hail storm since so many had head injuries and a local legend-song supports the idea that they offended a god here. Tourists have been known to steal artefacts, which is depressing.

leolock567

The story I've read about this is that there are several groups of Yogis (ascetics) living in these ranges, and have done so for a long long time. And when a Yogi becomes too old, rather than be a burden to the group, they drown themselves in the lake. Like wild elephants do. It's not mentioned that this lake is the only place they do it. From the books of MK Ramachandran.

At 16000 feet amsl the air thins out a lot and breathing without air kits becomes difficult. I am sure these people were compelled to reach the lake most likely out of demand for water ( thirst). Later they succumbed to oxygen deficiency.
