|thats scary, walking around with a huge hole in his head....|
|This and many other skulls from the Thames can be seen in the London Museum|
|yeah i think it's a mean sign of the lousy social position of beautifull woman in that time.|
|Its a male skull - look at the brow ridges. It shows the result of a trepan brain operation and that the patient lived long enough afterwards for the bone to begin to heal.|
