The collection consists of a photograph by R. R. Andrewss of a skull with filed teeth and an article on the skull entitled "Prehistoric Crania from Central America."
This skull was obtained by John G. Owens's Harvard-supported expedition to Central America in 1890. The skull, likely over 1,000 years old, was found by M. H. Saville in grave No. 14. R. R. Andrews photographed the skull during the Peabody Museum's Central American Exhibit.
