Human Remains; Cranium


Currently not on display


Human cranium that has been given an accession number in 1978 because the item could not be traced in the acquisition records. The only surviving documentation is a label that mentions it was a gift of Mrs Cox – someone we cannot identify in our records. The label suggests the cranium was within the collections from at least 1900. There is trace of a black ink annotation on the left temporal bone. CONDITION NOTE (1998): Incomplete, areas of loss, surface dirt, some white residue, some discolouration.
