Skulls Make the Perfect Holiday Gift


Forget the other stuff. Now here is something for a truly one-of-a-kind gift.

For just $200, you can buy preservation work on one of the 139 skulls of the Hyrtl Skull Collection  in the Mutter Museum of The College of Physicians in Philadelphia, Penn.

Called the "Save our Skulls" campaign, the goal is to help preserve the 19th century skulls which have been continually displayed for more than a century, and now need "dental" work to have cracked and loose teeth repaired. See story and "Save Our Skulls" details.

The "Save our Skulls" PDF catalogue provides name, suspected age and injury of the victim. Many were soldiers.

** Hurry! Subscriptions end Dec. 31, 2013.
