This is probably the rarest skull we have had and will ever have for sale. Here’s the history of it: “The opening of the skull is certainly in the context of a post-mortem examination ( for a planned anatomical skull the cut is too unclean, but at autopsy it is not).
The determined cause of death is an abscess of the right upper molar tooth (ie no direct war victim) The previous owner is Dr. Kristopher Washa ( PHD) . Anthropologist and professor at a university in Kentucky. Dr. Washa got the skull in the 1960s from his professor at Harvard.
The skull comes after statements by Dr. Washa from a soldier in the American Civil War .
Which side the soldier fought is unfortunately not known. The skull has reached the beginning of 1870 in the possession of Harvard University.
