This intriguing human skull has a stunning, aged patina. This piece features a trepanation hole, which is a surgical procedure in which a hole is drilled into the skull as a method to treat various health problems; specifically, those relating to a build-up of blood pressure as the result of an injury. The trepanation can be seen at the top of the frontal bone. This specimen has an uncut calvarium, and a missing mandible. Most of the dentition is missing post-mortem. There are two holes, one in each of the temporal bones, which are likely the result of damage. This marvelous specimen would make an attractive addition to any collection.
