Injuries to the skull 3 - 6

3. Small penetrating wound on the top of the skull.

A sharp blow from a pointed weapon on the crown of the head had enough force to split the inside of the skull, leaving two small flaps of bone.

4. Flat circle on left rear of skull.

A bladed weapon has just clipped the skull, shaving off the top layer of bone. Close examination reveals striations from the blade.

5 and 6. Two similar but smaller wounds on the top rear of the skull.
