The skull is composed of a number of bones. Lines where the bones meet are known as sutures. By tracing the sutures it is possible to gain a better understanding of the extent of a bone. Many of the bones that lie on the dorsal surface of the skull also extend onto the lateral surface. As you explore the skull try to develop an understanding of the extent of the various bones.
