Skull for sale

Deep pocketed collectors take note. A skull and what looks to my untrained eye like a pair of tibiae or humeri (one of them inscribed with the name “Thor”) are being auctioned by Christies’ on January 22; they expect it to fetch $10-20,000. The top of the skull is hinged; it was used as a ballot-box by Yale’s Skull & Bones society in the 19th century. Click here to read the AP story.
