This is exactly why they should DNA test all the skulls. Red hair is not widely apparent in the 'Indigenous people" There were the Cloud people who were supposedly Fair skinned and red haired. Are we talking about two or more different lines? Are the present people directly descendant?
The professor made Kohler wear a pair of hand-engineered goggles. Inside those goggles, specially arranged mirrors flipped the light that would reach Kohler's eyes, top becoming bottom, and bottom top.
At first, Kohler stumbled wildly when trying to grasp an object held out to him, navigate around a chair, or walk down stairs.
But over the next week, Kohler found himself adapting, in fits and starts, then more consistently, to such sights.
After 10 days, he had grown so accustomed to the invariably upside-down world that, paradoxically and happily, everything seemed to him normal, rightside-up. Kohler could do everyday activities in public perfectly well: walk along a crowded sidewalk, even ride a bicycle. Passersby on the street did ogle the man, though, because his eyewear looked, from the outside, unfashionable.
I wonder how many children died as they figured out how to do the head binding? I mean, they probably had to go through some trial and error.
Well, you have to remember that in the old days babies died all the time, along with their mothers. So wrapping up their heads to make them huge wouldn't make that big of a difference in the total number of deceased babies.
I just wonder how long it would take. Just until adulthood, or is it something like orthodontia, where you have to wear a retainer on your head off and on for a long time afterwards.
What would be interesting, I think, is if you found an elongated baby skull that was too young to have had time to grow into that shape. If that could be proven, that the baby pretty much had that skull shape at birth, that would be something.
