just in front of the lambda the sagittal suture ends in a 30 mm. broad suture, in the posterior part of which there is a Wormian bone.

The glabella as mentioned above is very prominent and overhangs a deeply depressed fronto-nasal suture. The face is high and narrow; the orbits are very square, and the nasal aperture is narrow. There is a certain amount of alveolar projection.

As has been said, the skull shows signs of an injury possibly inflicted during life. On the frontal bone are two cuts, one on each side over the orbits and nearly parallel with one another. The cut on the left is shallow, and measures 3.5 cm. bug; its inner or mesial lip is straight and even, but the outer is irregular owing to the breaking away of the outer table of the bone. The right incision is 8 cm. long and deeper than the left, the bone being fissured right through along the line of the cut. It begins 4 cm. above the centre of the right orbit and runs backwards in a slightly oblique direction to end on the parietal bone 14 mm. from the middle line. The mesial lip of the fissure is quite straight and sharp, but the outer is uneven due to the chipping away of the outer table. The border produced by the breaking away of the outer table is broader at the middle of the cut and tapers to a point at each end. This large cut very possibly repreĀ­sents a wound inflicted before death by a sharp weapon such as a battle-axe, the outer uneven border of the incision having been produced by the edge of the weapon turning outwards as the blow was struck, and chipping off the outer table of the bone, along the outer, which is also the lower, border of the cut.

SKULL No. III., from the outer ditch at the south-west corner of the early fort, is represented by a fragment consisting of the frontal bone and upper part of the face of an adult male.

The glabella and supraorbital ridges are fairly prominent. The palate is short and wide. The teeth of the upper jaw have been specially large and strong, judging by the size of the alveoli and of the 1st and 2nd molars which are present.

SKULL No. IV., from the outlet of the drain at the south-west corner of the enlarged fort, is that of a child about 12 years of age. As the face and mandible are absent, the exact age is not determinable. The specimen does not possess any features of special interest.

SKULL No. V., from the Bath buildings, is represented only by the parietal bones and tabular part of the occipital bone, i.e. the back part of the vault. The fragment has belonged to a skull of dolichocephalic proportions, and is specially remarkable in having a very prominent and bulging occiput. The interparietal part of the occipital bone forms a bulbous projection between the two parietals, but the globular enlargement involves also the hinder parts of the parietals, as if a tight cord had been drawn round the skull in front of the lambdoidal sutures. The lambdoidal suture is very complex, including a number of Wormian bones. Internally the left occipital (cerebral) fossa is deeper than the right, and there are slight recesses corresponding to the upper ends of the lambdoidal sutures.
