Ancient human burial site shows evidence of mass cannibalism: Slaves were skinned and butchered like animals
"Admission to them is through election and they are generally limited: they are not for all... [They reach] beyond the local tribe seeking out friends and members among alien peoples... a particular stress is given in these secret men's societies to a skull cult that is often associated with the headhunt. Ritual cannibalism and pederasty are commonly practiced and there is a highly elaborated use made of drums and masks."
  -Joseph Campbell,  The Masks of God: Primitive Mythology
