Skull

Mr W. Jesse, the expedition's official Zoologist, from the UK's Zoological Society, records finding an "aboriginal skull".

The skull was listed as one of 1,250 "specimens" that he sent back from Ethiopia. All the rest were the skeletons or stuffed remains of animals.

Check back for more details on the skull.
