Ice Age People Used Human Skulls As Cups

Illustration for article titled Ice Age People Used Human Skulls As Cups

Bones recently excavated at a cave in Southwestern England show that some 14,700 years ago, people used human skulls as cups. The people of the Ice Age even had the decency to clean the skulls of any soft tissue and use stone tools to shape the skulls to be more cup-like. Resourceful, I guess. [PLoS One via Wired]
