Skulls are the bone matter that comprises the head of a living, or in many cases, once-living organism. The top of the skull is called the cranium. The lower jaw and cheek bone region is referred to as the mandible. The purpose of a skull is to provide a housing for the brain as well as support for the face which includes eyes, ears, mouth, nose and chin.
Skulls feature prominently in several different television genres, in particular the horror and crime drama subgenres.
