Cranium with injuries - 10891253D Model
The Swedish History Museum holds a large collection of bones of various kinds, including human remains. We living humans are both appalled by and attracted to visible evidence of death. The scanned human remains presented on Sketchfab from our museum are important museum artefacts, chosen because they represent a specific historical event. They also represent one of humanity’s worst acts: violence towards other humans. It is therefore our wish that you, as a viewer, use the 3D-models with respect.
The image shows a part of a human cranium with injuries. Cuts from an edged weapon are visible at the top, and holes from a battle axe or a pole weapon. The square hole on the left side of the head comes likely from a cross bow bolt. The cranium is one of several thousand artifacts found in a mass grave outside Visby on the island Gotland. All remains and objects found on the site stem from a battle between Gotlandic peasants and Danish mercenaries on 27 July 1361.
