What is it about the changing skulls of Cherokee Native Americans that could possibly tell us anything about the effects of war, genocide and starvation on the human body?

Those traumatic changes, it turns out, are passed on genetically and have everything to do with everyone alive today.

In what may seem like a strange study, published in Annals of Human Biology, an important revelation arises.

Researchers from North Carolina State University and the University of Tennessee have found that environmental stressors – from the Trail of Tears to the Civil War – led to significant changes in the shape of skulls in the eastern and western Cherokee people. They are emphasizing the role of environmental factors in shaping our physical characteristics . . .
