It seems a number of new ancient (if that is not an oxymoron) skulls have been unearthed (well, found in a cave) in China. They look like THIS…
Scary sort of chap isn’t he?
But the thing that has the eggheads befuddled is that while he only lived around 11,000 years ago, he appears to be VERY different from US.
Which is STRANGE, given skulls dating MUCH farther back are only marginally more primitive than we are.
Thus, they claim, these people are of a previously unknown species.
But hold ON now – I am no archaeologist (I barely know how to SPELL it) but even I can see an obvious answer here.
In many ancient cultures, people BOUND babies heads for about six months, to create Artificial Cranial Deformation – it reduced lateral growth and produced people who looked like the Coneheads.
And looking at the above picture, it can clearly be seen that THESE skulls have had similar treatment. Except possibly, they used metal bands (the first head-bangers?) or even pots (the first pot-heads?)
They say out of the mouths of babes and sucklings – so has little old ME seen something that all of those clever buggers with their university degrees MISSED?
Only time will tell…
