An interesting find. The past is truly another world, but one that we can still visit vicariously.
After having taken one forensic anatomy / anthropology taught by the legendary Dr. William Bass, I became an armchair anthropology student / ” armchair archeologist “, even though I only handled 2 skulls & a handful of vertebra that were destined to be re – interred out in the U.S. Southwest ( I forget which tribe they belonged to ).
This article mentions a quartz ornament on one of the skulls, but didn’t include any pictures of it. perhaps it had a religious / spiritual significance ?
This does sound QUITE INTERESTING.

We need a little less formal religion / religious indoctrination ( Bricks & mortar ) & more spirituality to imbue the institutions with.
This is a rare post for me, as I’m ” One of the Nones ” / ” Spiritually Independent ” after spending many decades in one denomination after another.
Just a spoonful of thought…..

Speaking as a ” Spiritually Independent / Spiritual but not religious person “, religion needs to deal with big – picture issues like this, not which religion has ” the truth ” or who should sleep with who. My relatives would disagree, but they don’t read this SECULAR stuff.
