Розовым цветом выделены области, где в это время каннибализм еще практиковался.
Зеленым — территории, на которых эта практика была ограничена или исчезла самостоятельно.



Меня несколько удивило то, что в конце XIX в. каннибализм практикуется в Австралии.

With regard to cannibalistic acts as practised by Australian Aborigines, R.M. & C. H. Berndt, have shown, in a masterly analysis of the principal reports available, that the majority of these acts were of a ceremonial nature. The greatest number of these practices were associated with the pietistic burial ritual; whilst in many instances also the whole or part of the bodies of Aborigines killed in battle were eaten by their enemies. Other instances, were recorded, however, of the eating of the flesh of Aboriginal men, women, and children; and it would be untrue to say that all of these acts were performed from pietistic motives, or out of revenge.

Finally, what was the reason why, when the Aborigines had every justification, according to their own laws, for celebrating the killing of the early white invaders by eating their flesh, the number of white men eaten was exceedingly small in proportion to the total number killed, this being true even in areas where revenge cannibalism was the accepted practice? Alexander Kennedy quoted Inspector Urquhart, of the Native Police, as stating that the Aborigines of the Palmer River area preferred the flesh of Chinese, hundreds of whom were killed when travelling to the goldfields in the Eighteen Seventies, to that of Europeans. Beardmore of Tiaro put this question to his Aboriginal shepherds. Their reply was "too much salt, like it macon". This was corroborated by Urquhart and Lumholtz in North Queensland, and by Fraser on the Mary River. Bates reported the same of the desert tribes of West Australia; it was the same with primitive races elsewhere. They disliked the taste.

Спасибо!
А "у нас", между Обью и Енисеем, кто-то тоже ритуально вкушал?
