Okay, the headline on this story, “Ancient Brits ate dead and made skulls into cups,” pretty much says it all. I can’t improve on that.

Perhaps surprisingly, I’m going to skip right over the part about eating the dead. It would just be too easy to compare what British folks ate back then with what they eat now.

FLINTSTONESInstead, I’m going to zero in on the bit about making gruesome goblets from human skulls. What in the HELL was up with those Cro-Magnons?

“Earl! Get out the bone china, we’re havin’ the Hendersons for dinner.”
