there are a few ways to do this.
1 macceration
2 beetles
3 remove as much meat as you can then place the skull in 3 bin liners with a pint of water [sealed]
this is what you will need to do to sweat the the horns from the cores this process
may take 3/4 weeks or even longer
once you get the horns off you then can go ahead and boil the skull for cleaning.

It looks like she has a clean dried skull that she wants to put on a display board to me :whistling:
