Mystery skulls date back to 1100 A.D.

PROVO, Utah - The Utah state archaeologist has determined the age of three mystery skulls mailed to Brigham Young University.

KSL-TV reports the skulls were determined to be from about 1100 to 1300 A.D. That fits with the early suspicions of investigators that the skulls might be ancient artifacts.

The skulls will now be turned over to Utah's Native American leaders.

The skulls were delivered to BYU's history department last month in a box labeled with a return address in Augusta, Mont. The box also had a Montana postmark.

University police say they don't know why the skulls were sent to BYU.
