See The Real Indiana Jones Skull





It is believed to be more than 3,600 years old and experts say it is one of the most "enigmatic artefacts" in existence.

The Mitchell-Hedges Crystal Skull, better known as The Skull of Doom, is made from a block of clear quartz with a detachable jaw and is the size of a small head.

It has gone on show in Edinburgh as part of the Histories and Mysteries conference at the Hub in the city.

English adventurer Frederick Albert Mitchell-Hedges, described as the real Indiana Jones, is said to have found it under a collapsed altar inside a temple in British Honduras, now Belize, in the 1920s.
