A Paracas skull: note the dimple toward the top of the head, which is a product of head-binding, depressing the suture between the parietal plate. Head binding is a form of body alteration in which the skull of a human being is intentionally deformed. It is done by distorting the normal growth of a child’s skull by applying force. It is typically carried out on an infant, as the skull is most pliable at this time. In a typical case, headbinding begins approximately a month after birth and continues for about six months.
What effects does that have on a person? 0.o
Great question! Luckily, it’s pretty certain that people suffer no ill effects from cranial modification. It’s to do with brain plasticity: your brain is excellent at adapting, especially when young. Same goes for bones. Since this was initiated in infancy, the body had time and means to adapt.
The myth that cranial modification affects mental development started (at least in one instance) with the Spanish when they first made contact with native peoples of Latin America. They started the term “blockhead” to refer to someone with cranial modification and “low” intelligence (whatever that meant to them).
I’ll be happy to give you sources if you want them! I’d just have to dig around, but my chair is so comfy…

Going here with my sister in a year or so. As soon as I see even a glimpse of the site I will break down in tears I know it.
I’m pretty proud of myself for still being somewhat sane after such a fucked up few months though. The summer started with my uncle having a heart attack then two weeks later my aunt did and I basically had to drop everything and take care of her. Then everything just started breaking apart and washing away but these last two weeks everything has been all patched up nicely.
I wish I could just take all my of GFW friends to St. John’s. Not sure what I would have done this summer if they weren’t here. We may not have done all of the things on our summer to do list but we still had fun and I am most definitely closer to them all after such a turbulent few months. Pls guys move to the city and we can all have pizza and menchies together and tv marathons and get drunk downtown ughhhh
want this moment burned on my eyelids
