Cup crafted from prehistoric human skull discovered in cave in Spain


Ancient human bones buried thousands of years ago in a cave in southern Spain show signs of being manipulated — and perhaps even eaten in possible bouts of cannibalism, according to a new study.

The finds include a human shinbone used as a tool and a drinking cup crafted from a human skull. Similar evidence is found all over the region, hinting that the relationship between the living and the dead was fundamental to human societies at that time, the researchers reported in the study, published Wednesday (Sept. 20) in the journal PLOS One.
