PROVO - A box arrived at the BYU history department on Oct. 26 containing human skulls. They have now been identified.

The skulls showed up from the U.S. Postal Service in a box, sent Priority Mail. There was no label and no explanation why the skulls were being mailed to the university.

The Utah state archeologist determined there were actually three skulls in the box and they are all from about 1100 to 1300 A.D.

The skulls will be turned over to Native American leaders.
