The skull is the skeleton of the head, including the face. It is made up of 14 different bones, some paired and some single, to include the mandible. It is also called the cranium. The upper part of the skull is called the calvarium, while the remainder is the facial skeleton. The skull is the exoskeleton of the brain; it protects the brain in a rigid cage.

The hyoid bone is also taken as part of the skull and will be dealt with as part of the skull in this tutorial.
