"enlongataus"

For a number of years I've pondered on what one of the ancient people of Central and South America actually looked like in the flesh, and if their massive skulls made them appear freakish. Then a few years ago, a facial reconstruction expert got a his hands on a series of elongated skulls and create life-like reproductions. The man in this photo has been beautifully restored with every detail including the trepanned scare on his upper forehead from an earlier procedure.In this photo we're witnessing a race of unknown people, which make up a branch of our species, Homo sapien -sapien, with a brain capacity (in some cases) as much as 35% larger than what we possess today. Are these the geniuses who build the great cities of the ancient America's?
