Cosm,

I want to thank you for posting about this. I didn't know a thing about the long heads. When I saw the art, I use to think they were just fashionably tall hats and or the heads were done in creative abstract. To see actual skulls was pretty far out.

I did my own search and found this darwin link. The research is well done and put together. This site is worth the time to read as religion, philosophy, spirituality and archeology are all present. They come to no conclusions and leave you with more questions really.

Bottom line here is that they think they have evidence to suggest that an actual race of humans, ahem, did have elongated skulls. They have found 7 month old fetuses with them. (I don't think binding began in eutero)They are considering that head binding took place as a practice in homage to goddesses with elongated heads and OR to mimic the elitism of the original long head race that they considered to be of a higher intelligence.

Very fascinating read for anyone interested and maybe some will reconsider leaving open some conclusions you may have made on this topic.

edit -add on. I think it was also suggested that this race may have resulted from a genetic deformity that was carried on through an inbreeding race.

There is no evidence of a primitive Egypt, it is as if they spawned with their advanced knowledge and then disapeared. That is not the way it normally goes right? You start with the basics, learning stuff along the way you get more and more advanced?

This was not the case with the Egyptians

It was?

From all I've read, that's not even remotely the case. Here's a timeline of ancient Egyptian history, as far as we know it:

http://www.mnsu.edu/emuseum/prehistory/egypt/history/timeline.html

It spans over several thousand years... that doesn't sound immediate to me at all.

I'm sorry, but you have no clue what you're talking about. I've taken a whole class just on the rise of civilization, and I can tell you with certainty that Egypt developed gradually, just like any other civilization.

You're right I don't know much about Egypt, don't be sorry :P

I'm going to go do some more reading about it

OK after days of looking i couldn't find anything compelling to suggest they were another species except for the link above.

I can see how the South American skulls could have been binded with boards.



I cant say this for the Egyptian skulls as i haven't found any Egyptian skulls and according to the paintings and sculptures they have more rounded heads than the South American heads,but these are just that paintings and sculptures.I will keep an open mind about this after all when you see things like this what else could you do.

A rounded skull would simply require a different method of binding.
