This sheep skull was found on Pendle Hill, famous for its witch trials in the early 17th century. This sheep skull was found on Pendle Hill, famous for its witch trials in the early 17th century. The trials of the Pendle witches in 1612 are among the most famous witch trials in English history, and some of the best recorded of the 17th century. The twelve accused lived in the area surrounding Pendle Hill in Lancashire, and were charged with the murders of ten people by the use of witchcraft.
The area was once an ancient hunting ground and was the home of wolves and wild boar and is still a beautiful and untamed area of Britain today.
The sheeps skull is damaged and uncleaned left in its natural condition. It is rather dirty from being out in the elements for a long time. The nose area is missing as is the lower jaw. Most teeth are present apart from a few at the front.
I understand that this is the skull of a juvenile sheep. It is quite delicate and brittle and measures approx. 17cm.
A beautiful and natural object for a curiosity cabinet or a natural display which has an interesting origin.
Due to the complicated laws regarding the export of animal products, this is only available to purchase in Europe.
