Abstract: In 1831 Canon James Raine excavated Bede’s tomb in Durham Cathedral revealing a partial skeleton accompanied by a medieval ring. Three casts were made of the skull; the recent re-discovery of one of these casts provokes an examination of the authenticity of the remains and of antiquarian interests in craniology in the mid nineteenth century.
