Cast Replica Human Female Cradle Boarded Skull - Homo sapiens #BC-222

-Size: 6"L x 5"W x 5"H 

-Species: Homo sapiens (“Wise Man”)

-Notes: This trauma skull from prehistoric Peru and part of the Hrdlicka Paleopathology Collection is of interest to biological anthropologists as well as anatomists. Hrdlicka recorded it in 1910 as a cradleboard skull, possibly microcephalic. The skull is small, with a somewhat vertical forehead, a markedly flat occipital profile and an asymmetric (left greater than right) parieto-occipital bulge. The skull has the appearance of having been "squashed" in the anteroposterior plane.
