Elongated Skulls of Ancient Europe and the Middle East | Scott Skinner | Megalithomania

Scott has been investigating the archaeological evidence for artificial cranial deformation across Europe and the Middle East, with examples tracing back at least 10,000 years and a later spread into Europe via various cultural groups. Along with studying all the available published literature, he has been museum hunting across Europe in search of these skulls and is attempting to produce a comprehensive catalogue of all incidences worldwide, which will be included in his forthcoming book.

Scott Skinner is a British archaeologist by profession and is currently employed as a site director for S.W.A.T archaeology. He has a B.A. in archaeology and anthropology from the University of Kent, where he specialised in human osteology and palaeopathology. He has been involved in several European excavations including Pompeii, Italy, and Crete. He has been attending Megalithomania since 2009 and this was his first major public lecture.
