Additional Content

This specimen is a fragment of a cranial vault with almost the totality of the left parietal and a part of the adjacent frontal. The study of the sutures shows the presence of the metopic suture. The temporal is too fragmentary for having information about the sus-orbitary region. The age of the individual is certainly not very old, but he is an adult. The lambdoïd and sagittal sutures are closed, but the coronal suture is open. (c) Arnaud Mazurier 2004
