Re: Supraorbitals and aggressiveness



Some would say Homo sapiens was the most aggressive of all creatures.  He
lost his brow ridges along with a general lightening of the skeleton, some
time after he started to expand his tool kit from spear and hand axe to a
very much larger set.  Presumably at this time he never had to risk
contacting large animals directly.

Actually I've just realised - this doesn't tell us much since more ancient
man may have needed to look more aggressive especially if he wasn't as
powerful.  I don't believe it though!
