|We have always been here
Disabled people: not a modern invention. Not always put out on a hillside.PLOS ONE: Earliest Cranio-Encephalic Trauma from the Levantine Middle Palaeolithic: 3D Reappraisal of the Qafzeh 11 Skull, Consequences of Pediatric Brain Damage on Individual Life Condition and Social CareLivescience: 100,000-Year-Old Case of Brain Damage Discovered
So: around 100,000 years ago, a child survived a head injury which would have caused moderate or severe traumatic brain injury. This was "most probably followed by significant neurological and psychological disorders, including troubles in social communication". But they lived a significant number of years after the injury, and were buried in a way that suggest unusual, deliberate ceremony.
(Which could, of course, mean "these deer antlers ward off the evil from this unholy changeling child we finally executed." Many stories are possible.)
Hello, Qafzeh 11. Hello across the millennia.
(Also, hello little Sima de los Huesos Cranium 14
, 500,000 years ago, who was not even a modern human but a Middle Pleistocene hominin, possibly a proto-Neanderthal
. Hello.)This post was originally posted at http://rydra-wong.dreamwidth.org/410851.html: comments

|Calling the hive mind: no eggs, no dairy, no soya, no nuts?
I have a nephew who's just turned one, and who has got massive food allergies -- he's being tested by assorted doctors, but currently it looks as if he's allergic to eggs, dairy, soya, and possibly nuts/seeds. To start with.
His mother (my sister) attempted a dairy-free, egg-free cake for him, and despite heroic efforts, it ... did not go well.
Anyone got useful tips on cooking, baking in particular? Flaxseed as an egg subsitute won't work because of the possibility that he's allergic to nuts and seeds, and many non-dairy recipes seem to use a lot of soya ...
Recipes for "treat" foods would be particularly appreciated.
Perhaps surprisingly, he doesn't seem to have problems with gluten.
ETA: Thank you thank you everyone for all the great answers coming in -- this is very much appreciated.This post was originally posted at http://rydra-wong.dreamwidth.org/409498.html: comments
