She prehistoric myths regarding inhabitants on the British Isles have remarkably often tended to fall into cannibalism, scientists have never really managed to get a comprehensive answer. However, 14.700 year old the findings made in southeast England on skulls that have been emptied, carved out, cleaned and with stone tools shaped into a beaker. There are myths about a religious hint when bone fragments have been found and blood sacrifice of humans and skulls filled up with blood.

Seems those Masons are up to no good

How does this relate to Masons in any way?

Like Atsbhct said is very important to link the articles in order to read the sources, I have read two of your post as I find the topic interesting but none have links to the source.

Well, in a few thousand years, scientists will find some of our stuff. Full skeletons, hanging on hooks. Must be cannibals! What will they think of toys like batman and the hulk.

Perhaps religious figures?

It is quite possible that the skulls were part of a recycling effort to reuse things that were just laying around in the forest. But cannibalism sounds better!

It may have been a way to honor dearly departed Uncle Bob, who liked his ale.

Science, sexing it up because the real answer is simply that they don't know.

It's hard to get a joke from a poorly formatted, unsourced post.

I think it more likley that skull cups were used in rituals by the ancients-that may or may not have involved cannibalism.
They could have been the skulls of highly repected noble men/women,and people may have drunk from them as a mark of respect to that person.

If you want evidence of cannibalism,there are numerous documented cases of ancient human bones which have been found to have flint tool markings in all the places where flesh would be cut from the bones-most likley in order to be eaten.
Such bones have been found all over the world,not just in the UK.
It is a well established fact that our ancestors did eat each other.

A certain sect of Hindu Sadhus called the Aghori still do this. They find a skull in a graveyard and that becomes their bowl. They use it for a lot of things, just about the only possession they have, from drinking to mixing up a mull of hashish for their chillums. They cover themselves in ash from the human dead cremated by the Ganges river. They reside among the grave and are priests of Kali in Her death/destruction aspect.

They are not cannibals because they are totally vegetarian.

Here is a pic of an Aghori Sadhu:

Quite so. The indigenous people in some areas of South America and possibly Borneo area still have rituals of eating the brain of their departed loved ones. It is not for food. It is to do with ancestral worship. It is a sympathetic magic ritual communal meal to keep their ancestors alive in the living. Not my "beaker" of tea, lol, but humans all over had done this kind of thing in one form or another.
