Ntarama: Shelves of Bones

Title

Ntarama: Shelves of Bones

Description

Shelves of skulls and other bones rest inside the Ntarama church. The inflicted skull damage often illustrates just how the victims died. Many skulls are cut in a manner that indicates a machete blow. Other contain projectile wounds from artillery fire, spears, or weaponized hoes. Remnants from the weapons are sometimes displayed alongside the skulls.
