A blunt force trauma set comprising six skull fragments from six individuals.
- From The Maxwell Museum of Anthropology's Laboratory of Human Osteology
- Shows depressed fractures at various stages of healing
- Inner and outer tables of the skull are visible
These fragments show various types of depressed fractures at various stages of healing (from no evidence of healing to well-healed fractures). The injuries were caused by different weapons (from hammers to bullets). In addition, the injuries occurred on different parts of the skull; and since the skulls are presented as fragments, one can also see the inner and outer tables of the skulls around the sites of the injuries.
