good grief, its a child with a birth defect or some religious mania caused the parents to deform their child.
Yes it was more common way back when and No you don't see it every day now and that's because we now have science that corrects such deformities before they get out of hand.
Good grief sometimes I despair.

When I watched the quick video showing the skull from the front and right (facing) side, it almost looks like part of the skull has a crack from just above eye sockets to underneath the jaw. Would it be possible to take two separate skulls and splice them together? If you were looking for a hoax.
Course, I am sure the anthropologist would have noticed...
