So they have proof white people were cannibals? Or just people in general? Anything to make white people look bad, that is what society seems to push nowadays.

For certain cannibalism took place across the old and new world in the aftermath of crop failures but I see no reason to conclude marks on a skull are indicative of cannibalism. If someone is being butchered, I would thin large muscles such as the thighs and buttocks would be what a cannibal went after.

I’m reminded of a Rodney Dangerfield joke.

Do you know the definition of trust ?

"Scientists Find........" the earth is flat, nope, oatmeal lowers cholesterol, nope, coffee raises cholesterol, nope, global warming (it's now 30 F in KC and snowing expected all night May 2/3, hasn't snowed May 2nd for over 100 years!) is caused by human presence, nope, Jamestown settlers ate humans to survive as there weren't enough animals available?????

Sorry, I no longer believe anyone doing this kind of "science."

The reactions on this and on a previous thread on this story puzzle me. Why should anyone be either surprised or offended at the suggestion? People were starving. It was an extreme survival situation. There are instances throughout history when people of all races, colors, and creeds have resorted to cannibalism under such circumstances. The Donner party is probably the most famous American example.

The essential distinction to make is whether anyone committed murder in order to cannibalize the remains. No evidence of that. Cannibalizing the remains of people who had died of natural causes is a different matter.
