Ive a question that relates to dinosaur feathers and hominids and cavemen. When researchers in the field find a skull, what is their priority? To pick and brush it off, right?

Since we know that dinosaur and ancient bird feather imprints can be retained if the critter was covered in fine mud (rare but not unusual), shouldnt skull diggers be looking at the inverse of the skull for hair imprints on the dried mudstone? Of course once the skulls soft tissues decomposed, the surrounding silts collapsing inwards would destroy some of the features, but the dead hair protein would probably leave an imprint, possibly visible through MRI or micro or nano Xray analysis or something.

I for one would like to know the precise hair/beard patterns, as Im tired of paintings, drawings, models of ancient neandertals, erectoids and apiths with short haircuts, since sapiens have hair that grows a yard long when left uncut.

I do wish the bone & stone folks would check on hair, probably the only soft tissue recognizable after 20k years in the hardening mud.

Yes, I accept the Nobel prize for that great idea, I need the cash!
