The Bolinao skull with its golden teeth is one of the most ghoulish examples of a strange tradition once practiced in the Philippines. It's called dental ornamentation, and it was incredibly painful! This skull was discovered at the Balingasay Burial Site, excavated by the National Museum of the Philippines back in the 1960s. The team discovered 51 adult burials and two babies that had been interred in jars. The remains dated back to sometime around the 14th century, with each grave marked by a giant oyster shell. All kinds of other cool things were found in the graveyard, such as Chinese coins from the 11th century, pieces of bronze, glass beads, and ornaments of gold. #originsexplained #mysteriousdiscoveries #history #skull #discovery #shorts

I would die from pain! Had a tooth ache once and that gives me the chills.
Your right it would have been pretty painful
First people to get golden grills. They One upped it by adding jewels.
I don’t know theses people know the half of it. I’m sure they had medicine to help with the pain
It could be a little bit of every thing.
How did they get the gold & gems to stay on the teeth?
