As an Archaeologist and Anthropologist I'm
familiar with head binding.
And had trouble with then 'scientific' explanations.
Often when anthropologist are confronted with
something beyond current comprehension they
might use " Cultural phenomena " as an explanation.
And I think this happened with skull binding.
The had a link and drummed it away.
"a person with a finely elongated head is thought to be more
intelligent, of higher status, and closer to the world of the spirits."
A National Geographic special may shed some light on this
Certainly worth the consideration.
Were they in shaping the skulls by binding,
applying pressure to the brain its self which
changed the workings of their Intellect?
As the pressure in the brain of some of the subjects of
the Natl. Geo program change their intellect?
