Our ancestors had more sturdy structure, and teeth that were worn down indicating they had tougher diet and more powerful jaws, but how does this translate into facial beauty?
Left is picture of hunter gatherer skull over 10,000 years old. The white you see in the cheekbones is a development of dense sponge-like bone matrix inside the bone, a sign that their zygomatic bone where the masseter (chewing) muscle attaches has been made very strong and protruded out. Their faces were wider and more square, while modern human’s skull is getting longer and narrow, more oval shape. Anthropology note they had much more 3D face and protruding base of the nose (forward maxilla) while modern humans faces are getting flatter.
