Yes Akua, I am aware of the Mangbetus. Their elongated heads are a result of binding, and are, or were perhaps some of the last people to do so. They are not the ones I am refering to though.

Please read my comment again . It is not an unsolved mystery . The Mangbetus ( originating from Egypt ) are well and alive til to date , in the Kingdom of Lado . Ask them !
Happy New Year !

Head binding, cradleboarding and the like were global practices. This art literally molds bone like soft clay and the results can be very exotic and stunning to behold, which was probably the whole point. Skulls derived from such practices are the realm of Anthropology. Nothing more and nothing less. However, when skulls are discovered composing of only two and not three parietal plates amoung other features, regardless of whether or not the skulls went through binding to achieve elongation, such finds are the realm of Cryptozoology, in my mind. The only way such skulls can be classified as examples of normal skulls, modified, is to show me that the act of modification can cause a fussion of those bone plates to such an extent as to erase or make invisible the sutures of the bone plates.One or two can be an aberration, but not dozens. Until then I am part of the crowd who believe we may be looking at an unsolved mystery.

Human Origins

Adam and Eve (1640s) by Jacob Jordaens.
The common male and female ancestors of human beings are popularly known as “Genetic Adam” and “Genetic Eve.” A study conducted by researchers at the University of Sheffield claims all men can trace their origins to one male ancestor, ‘Adam’, who lived approximately 209,000 years ago. This places ‘Adam’ within the same time frame as ‘Eve’ - the ‘mother of all women’ – and provides evidence for the existence of a prehistoric ‘Adam and Eve.’

Ancient Places

The eerie mansion that is today known as Loftus Hall.
Driving along the isolated road that runs down the scenic Hook Peninsula in Ireland’s Ancient East, it is easy to spot the mansion that has earned itself the reputation as the most haunted house in Ireland. If ever a building fit the stereotype of a home haunted by its bloody and tragic past, this was it...

Our Mission

At Ancient Origins, we believe that one of the most important fields of knowledge we can pursue as human beings is our beginnings. And while some people may seem content with the story as it stands, our view is that there exists countless mysteries, scientific anomalies and surprising artifacts that have yet to be discovered and explained.

The goal of Ancient Origins is to highlight recent archaeological discoveries, peer-reviewed academic research and evidence, as well as offering alternative viewpoints and explanations of science, archaeology, mythology, religion and history around the globe.

We’re the only Pop Archaeology site combining scientific research with out-of-the-box perspectives.

By bringing together top experts and authors, this archaeology website explores lost civilizations, examines sacred writings, tours ancient places, investigates ancient discoveries and questions mysterious happenings. Our open community is dedicated to digging into the origins of our species on planet earth, and question wherever the discoveries might take us. We seek to retell the story of our beginnings.
