The forehead is fully arched, the glabella prominent, and the whole character of the frontal bone is essentially different from the Indian type. The sutures are very much ossified, and even to some extent obliterated....
Página 129 - Slight as this elevation was, it had proved sufficient to prevent the lodgement of water ; and hence the cist was found perfectly free from damp.
