Modified human crania from Göbekli Tepe provide evidence for a new form of Neolithic skull cult

Science Advances 28 Jun 2017:
Against the background of available archaeological and ethnographic evidence, two interpretations of the carved skulls from Göbekli Tepe are presented. These interpretations are connected to ancestor veneration or the display of dispatched enemies through either active “branding” of individuals or functional modification of the skull for display.
I second the latter interpretation : display of dispatched enemies.
If my own theory of Göbekli Tepe is correct, the thousand carbonic years represent 40 actual years and a rapid rise in carbon 14 content. It is the traditionally 40 years of Babel, described in Genesis 11.
In Genesis 10 you find Nimrod described as a "mighty hunter before the Lord". Tradition adds he was a manhunter, he was heading Babel project, it lasted 40 years of building effort before dispersion of nations through confusion of tongues.
And I guess the enemies were simply shirkers, Nimrod was showing his skill as a "manhunter" or "headhunter"./HGL
PS, if you know about Rosemary Kennedy, you might know what I mean there could have been a recent pre-mortem incision. In terrorem./HGL
