This specimen is a skull prepared as a teaching tool for medical students. With its simple autopsy cut for easy removal of the skull cap, this skull is perfect for understanding the inner structure of the cranium. It also features jaw springs, for the articulation of the mandible. It is presumed to be the skull of a middle-age, European male. This piece is dated to 1910 and demonstrates a cranial abnormality known as Plagiocephaly, or a flat back of the skull. This condition is no longer very prevalent, due to medical advancement. It also features Wormian bones, or extra sutures on the skull cap. Originally donated by an individual for the advancement of medical science, this skull has now found its way from an educational device to the public market. Responsibly sourced, beautifully preserved, and thoughtfully selected, this skull is the perfect item for the respectful bone collector or medical student.
