Description du produit
Présentation de l'éditeur
The puzzle of why diverse ancient peopleeven on remote Pacific Islandswould use head-binding to create elongated heads is mystifying. Where did they even get this idea? Did some people naturally look this waywith long narrow heads? Were they some sort of elite race that roamed the entire planet? Why do anthropologists rarely talk about cranial deformation and know so little about it?
As incredible as it seems, Childress and Foerster discover that cranial deformation was practiced on nearly every continent by special groups who believed they were imitating their highly advanced ancestors. This is a mind-blowing trip into the strange past of humans on planet earth.

UPDATE: February 2014 - Recent DNA analysis has shown that DNA from these skulls is unlike anything yet discovered and may not be human, as we know it. These skulls may turn out to be one of the most important discoveries ever made.
It's not bad, since it is the only book on the subject.
I am really wondering if there is MORE THAN ONE of these skulls with '2 small holes' in the back, which some surmise were for nerves and or blood supply, thus indicating natural birth condition rather than deformation.
These people were apparently keen on trepanning....for whatever reason, so perhaps the 2 small holes were just another type of 'experiment'?
If a skull is elongated by head binding, do the children inherit the long skull?
I sometimes see an American of African descent having the mid-size elongated skull shape, with high hairline.
Although the Paracas skulls are said to have 'less teeth', the subject of double dentition comes into the 'legends' regarding ancient giants,
so as an aside here,there was a man in our apartment house who liked to mention his double row of teeth as a conversation opener, offering us to 'feel my teeth'. He was definitely not a 'giant'.
He may not even know it yet but you'll be reading more about this connection of the Mitanni down the road, how they trace back to Vedic traditions and even their writings being older than Egyptian all will eventually be the tie in that scholars have been looking for to understand how cranial deformation traveled the globe through these Indo European speaking Arayan tribes. It is through this tribe that trained their woman to be warriors and who provided brides to the royals and high priest class of Egypt called the Mitanni that we will find the answers for how feet binding, tatooing, scarring for intimidation and neck stretching, ear stretching, and cranial deformation all made its way around the globe as they traveled with the seafaring Hittites carrying these things with them as they contacted other peoples. This brought cranial deformation to South America and more and answers why you can take a Olmec helmet and stick it on top of any old Hawaiian Native and have your Olmec Chieftan in real life standing right in front of you and David covers quite a bit of this in the chapter covering Nefertiti and Tiye who was her aunt and both of them were warrior princesses from the Mitanni tribes explaining why Nefertiti and King Tut, Akenaton and more were cone heads!
Its a very exciting book. The only problem with this book is that its too short and I read it too fast and now want more! Quickly David now! Write another, bigger! Think bigger! :-)
