Interactive Skull Anatomy Tutorial
There are photos of the skull here that you can interact with.
When you move the cursor over the photo with your mouse,
each bone you move over will cause the same bone in a corresponding drawing to turn red.
If at that point you click on the bone its name will appear in a box next to the drawing.
There is also a slide show of the skull.
As you advance through the slides you will repeatedly come to a slide with an arrow pointing to a bone.
In the following slide the name of that bone will be shown.
