Yeah, I'm doing more research into them right now. I can't find an official source concerning the analysis of the bones. Every site just says they
have been analyzed and determined to be human with deformations/subjected alterations.
I also found out that the story is actually a year old too. Damnit. I hate it when someone on facebook posts something as new news only to find out
it's like ancient.
Still, I kinda wonder though, whether the skulls really are human or not, wouldn't just claiming cultures did this for no reason be a nice cover to
keep people from wondering about it in the case they actually were not human? *finds strange skull* Oh that's a common thing, nothing to see here.
Don't ask, don't tell. Until they started discovering them, I had never heard it was a practice. All of a sudden they say there are places in
history where the practice is mentioned, records of how it was done and all that, and I had never heard of it when I was a kid, and I was a real
archaeology nut when I was younger. I mean, yeah, we still have the hole in it that they don't know why it was done, but you never know. I mean,
you get stories of them allegedly covering up evidence of other more human-concerned things that don't meet with mainstream notions, like the
Americas maybe being populated thousands or even hundreds of thousands of years before mainstream history claims. Sites that indicate such findings
allegedly being suddenly shut down only to have researchers return later and find that they have either been cleared out or built over and turned into
private residences or other such off-limit properties. Other scientists seemingly going out of their way to find any theory whatsoever to make the
finds fit with the already believed mainstream... makes you wonder... that is, if any of these claims of such finds are true and such things really
are being done to cover them up...
Still, if such deformations were applied to people in higher society, what made them think that having an elongated skull denoted they were
"special' or "more important" or possibly smarter or "better" than others? Monkey see, monkey do, maybe? I dunno... it's an odd thing that
people did this to themselves at all, and by the find in this particular case, it seems to have carried a high mortality rate by attempting it in
one's youth. I think it was almost half the elongated skulls' ages were determined to be 16 and under...
