VERY impressive skull
"Hunterian Museum : London, England The skull of a young boy with a second imperfect skull attached to its anterior fontanelle. Sent to John Hunter from Bengal, India in the late 1780s."
Judging from the dentition, it appears this child lived to a respectable age, so he must have been well cared for (perhaps worshipped as recent events in India have shown).
