Two-boned skulls

These skulls have prominent crossed bones rather than wings. Most of the skulls are depicted in side view, some are damaged, and many have teeth in disarray. Similarities in shape over a wide area suggest that carvers traded stencils. Except for Granary in Boston, few burying grounds have more than one or two such stones.
