Can't say that our ancient ancestors were wasteful! Also they took some DNA from Cheddar Gorge Man and also DNA tested the local population, and he still has relations living locally in Somerset, including a history teacher. It must be strange to look at a skeleton that old and know that you are descended from that person
I read it, but didn't see any reference at all to cannibalism? It didn't state that there was evidence of flesh being eaten, only that skulls were used as drinking cups; for all we know it could have been seen as customary to pass around a drink at the funeral of a dead warrior or something. Not that I would be surprised if there was cannabilism in those days, considering the country was covered in trees and people lived in small tribes.
There you go, that's better! I suspect cannabalism was rife in those days, probably the meat of other tribes rather than tribe members eating eachother; in 2008 they discovered a tribe in Brazil which had probably never had contact with the outside world:
Looks like I have to join the bandwagon and escape to Australia and New Zealand, I KNEW that there must have been good reason why everybody is moving there, nobody told me about the bleedin gangs of cannibals!!! Murdoch doesn't tell us that, does he? Blimey, I better lose weight quickly, they won't want to take a skinny one!
Yeah, I'm not sure if visa restrictions count if you're loaded in the land of the free. They held up a friend of mine's work visa because he'd once been arrested (not charged) when he was 15.
They then asked if he wanted to attend his closest embassy to sort it out. He said yes, and living in Liverpool at the time, they sent it to Belfast without a hint of irony or a thought that it might be on a different island!
