Abstract

Archaeological excavation recovered medieval human skeletal remains from Coventry Cathedral. A disarticulated skull from the desecrated Copston Chapel displayed major cranial weapon injury. Osteological examination indicates that the injuries, although extensive, were not fatal. The cause and chronicity of the lesions are discussed. The rarity of medieval British healed cranial weapon injuries has prompted this report. Documentary sources for medieval cranial surgery are included.
