Two fisherman have caught a 1,000-year-old human skull on the banks of Lake Georgetown in Texas.

Black said further down from Lake Georgetown, near the San Gabriel River, researchers discovered a cemetery dating back between 1,000 and 1,500 years old. He said the skull might have come from a similar site.

“When you only have one cranium that rolls out of the bank, you wouldn’t be able to evaluate that possibility,” Black said. “Not to be morbid, but if you were to take a 100 student and faculty skulls and look at them side by side, you’d be able to see a lot of similarities.”
