This report describes an ancient skull, in which both maxillary canines were impacted and mandibular third molars were missing. During the excavations at the early village site of Cayönü (Turkey), the subject of this report was found inside a skull building (charnel house) together with the fragments of 75 skulls, and was the least damaged skull of the Cayönü series (Ozbek, 1988). The skull showed skeletal and dental Class I relationship, with an orthognathic profile and a reduced bimaxillary alveolar prognathism. Assessment on the skull confirms the findings of the previous studies and reports that irregularities in the position of the teeth are already found in prehistoric man, and therefore, do not seem to be the result of modified conditions of modern civilization only.
