I agree with you slayer. I have no problem accepting that human beings did in fact deform their craniums...just like some cultures did their feet,
ears, nose, necks...etc...etc...etc.
What I have always wondered is....why? What were they trying to accomplish? What were they emulating? Did they see something or come in contact
with something? The idea that it occurred just about everywhere in societies that had no contact with each other has always been a puzzler for me.
I have tried to dismiss this with the wave of my hand in the direction that perhaps someone high up in their society was born with a birth defect but
was indeed still a ruler or leader...so out of respect, they deformed themselves to look like this other person. A big reach, I know.
Hopefully one day will have a better understanding of why these things were done. Some of the explanations we have now seem plausible, but, in my
mind's eye, they have holes in them...primarily being that it was basically a worldwide practice from societies that never knew about each other.
