Trepanation was a worldwide used surgical method that dates back to the neolithic. A specific part of a living persons skull was opened and left to heal.
It might have been a way to cure people who behaved in abnormal ways. Opening the skull would let demons and evil spirits to leave the persons mind. Maybe it was used to cure intense headaches such as migraine too.
There was different methods used to open the skull such as drilling, cutting and scraping with flint objects.
The skull on the first picture shows that the person did not survive the procedure. The holes next to the hole is probably holes drilled to train on the surgical technique.
It shows that 80-85% of all skulls that has been found with this treatment has survived. We probably should not underestimate the skills that ancient surgeons possesed.
Today was extremely laid back and honestly it felt nice to have a chill Sunday as if I were back home. Woke up at 1pm (whoops) and decided to do my laundry and dishes and clean my room and take the trash out- you know, all the fun adult things. Afterwords, my friend and I went over to Christiania to walk around and check it out. And let me tell you, this place was like an entire little world dropped in the middle of Copenhagen. Christiania is a little town in Copenhagen where the houses are little wooden shacks on the lake and everything has a unique, hippie, outdoorsy kind of vibe. And to be honest, weed is a very big commodity there and it seemed that everyone was smoking😬! We didn’t stay too long but got the chance to walk around and check out the unique scenery.
After that, a couple of my friends and I met up in Tivoli to watch the Germany-Mexico game and it was amazing that Mexico was able to beat the world champ🇮🇹!! We then walked around and got ice cream and went on a ride then decided to head back home to pack up for our study tours tomorrow. I head off to Oslo, Norway at 8am tomorrow so it’s an early night for me. #Copenhagen#Denmark#studying#studyabroad#travel#traveling#fun#exploring#Mexico#worldcup#soccer#Tivoli
MD | التوقيع مع إريكسين يكاد يكون مستحيلا.
- البارسا يعلم ان التعاقد مع إريكسين صعبا للغاية ويكاد يكون مستحيلا، نادي توتنهام ليس لديه نية بيع نجمه الكبير، وهو نادي ليس بحاجة للأموال، ولديه قدرة مالية كبيرة، واذا فكر في بيع إريكسين سيكون سعره 200 مليون يورو.
