skeletal remains found in Croatia indicates East Asians were present in Europe around 5th-6th centuries AD Maybe Huns?

Oct 2015
At a site called Hermanov vinograd in eastern Croatia, archaeologists recently found a peculiar burial pit that contained the remains of three teenage boys. The teens were buried sometime between 415 and 560 A.D. The one without any skull modifications had ancestry from western Eurasia, the teen who had a heightened but still rounded skull had ancestry from the Near East, and the boy who had a very elongated skull had ancestry mainly from East Asia.

I think this may solve one of the mysteries of the origin of the Huns. I think its quite possible that the boy with East Asian ancestry and elongated skull modification may have been a Hun.

Can DNA solve the mystery of Europe’s pointy skulls?
