    And used human skulls as drinking vessels!

    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

        Really? In the late 20th century?

        I don't think so matey, I was around then, I can quite specifically state that nobody that I know was eating human flesh 12 years ago.

        And we are going at it again yikes

        A whole bunch of them you say? I had better go and buy a shotgun then, I don't want dangerous gangs of cannibals thinking that I look tasty.

        Anybody in a country which can give me asylum? I need to escape the British cannibals lol

    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.

      I was also watching the BBC morning programme, and there are also some bones that were found with some animal bones that looked like they had been butchered and bone marrow extracted.

      Sorry for the confusion, I tend to pick bits of info up from all over the place

        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:

        I wouldn't be over confident that they wouldn't eat me if I happened to stumble across their village!

      She does a L'Oreal advert here where she says, "dull, limp and lifeless" to which you have to reply, "It was until I saw you, love" - last one to do so drinks.

    Interesting the way threads can go - a discussion on the Ancient Brits being cannibals leads to tissue paper and Cheryl Cole?

    Freud would have a field day! smile

    You could be in luck Greek One, as Cheryl is probably going to work on the US X Factor. You could get to see her in the flesh- do they let you over the border for these purposes?

        Sssh - we'll have Greek One over here lurking in the ladies at every club in Newcastle!!!

        Interesting how she got a work visa for the US though with a criminal record? Are charges spent after a number of years, so that you don't have to list them?

          And I consider them my territory!

          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!

            LOL - least we know where to find you at weekends!

            I doubt our Cheryl had to do any island hopping to obtain her visa! I hope that your friend got his sorted out eventually.
