maybe a bearded Viracocha version would be more fitting?
when one hears "elongated skulls," one might think of the elongated and much larger cranial capacity Paracas skulls of Peru and neighbouring Bolivia or the elongated skulls of Akhenaten and Nefertiti in Ancient Egypt or the Malta skulls that are elongated width-ways or the conheads of Germany and France... in fact, the Bolivian skulls mentioned above had skeletons that were 2.6 meter or 8.5 feet tall. One doesn't tend to think of Stonehenge in Britain; or put it this way, "It is very rare to hear of Elongated Skulls at Stonehenge."
Last year, there was a report from writer/researcher Maria Wheatley of an elongated-skull Neolithic Queen found alone in her own large barrow alongside another barrow where hundreds of elongated-skull people were killed. We're not sure at this point whether this Stonehenge Neolithic Queen was one of the natural elongated skulls bearing the two distinctive nerve-blood vessel holes at the back, or the cosmetic cranial-boarded skulls. If it's the former, the discovery of elongated-skull'd people in Britain might shed a whole new light on the meaning of Stonehenge and other such Pyramid or stone monuments around the world from 6,000 years or so ago.
It could also tell us something about a) why standing stones were introduced to the bank'n'ditch henge and b) why they eventually fell into disuse.
The elongated-skull'd Homo Capensis (as they're being called) people are looking like the missing piece of the GRP or Global Rule Puzzle, and it's a Corporate Crime that the research of these people aren't being properly studied in more archeological detail via better funding/resources/media publication. These homo capensis people could be the Quetzelcoatls who brought the farming world together. The Great Map Makers of pre-diluvian Earth who charted the shape of antarctica before the Last Ice Age started? They could be the Global Royals? The Ancient Sea-faring Agriculture Bringers? The CCF or Contemporary Conehead Fashionistas?
The ancient people of that stone-bronze age certainly gave their Conehead Kings & Queens the spectacular barrow-burial stone-temple send-off. Were the global cultures who engaged until recently in skull binding or skull boarding to squish their children's heads into a more pleasing conical or elongated shape, merely emulating those homo capensis people who (allegedly) used to rule over man, harking back to more ancient times when modern man and his ruler first met? Were the standing-stone enhanced henges intended as a prison for the finally-conquered or lost-faith-in conehead rulers? See, for me, finding only the heads of these giants suggests that the head was the desired object, "Bring me the head of this conehead fucker," being one of the ways a rebelling human-king might have referred to his 'competition'.
"Once the elongated skull people lost their power, everything changed at Stonehenge," Wheatley gives this as the reason the Stonehenge monument eventually fell into disrepair and went out of service for the people of Ancient Britain.
FURTHER CONEHEAD-TECHNOLGY VIEWING: are guys like Brien Foerster really onto something? Is it possible that 'bronze age people didn't have the technical knowledge to make these great ancient monuments' like the Sphinx or the Pyramids of Egypt and South America or rings of Stonehenge, Avebury and Brodgar and other such neolithic sites that litter the British and French territory? Are the coneheads responsible for orchestrating or architecting such feats of Human Engineering?
Hudes & Spencer (click for link) have a much more confrontational interview about their homo capensis ideas, but Foerster's conehead interview is much more sedate and considered - depends how you're feeling, this morning, I guess.
