Abstract: 

"The Skull of Sir Thomas Browne" Writing from the Athenaeum Club to the "Times," Mr. Edmund Owen explains that Sir Thomas Browne was buried in the family vault in Norwich in 1682. In 1840, his casket was opened and vandalized. His skull eventually found its way to the museum at Norwich Hospital, where Osler recently had the skull enclosed in a crystal casket. Owen believes that the skull should be returned to Browne's original coffin.
