Red deer antler heddress
 (голосов: 0)
This is thought to be a headdress worn by ancient Britons nearly 10 000 years ago. The holes would have been used to tie it to the head with a leather thong. It may have been worn by hunters as a disguise, but it is more likely to have been part of a costume worn on special occasions, perhaps during religious ceremonies.

Twenty-one adult red deer skull parts with antlers were excavated from the Mesolithic site of Starr Carr in Yorkshire. All had been skinned using flint tools. The bones forming the top of the nose were then broken off and the edges of the remaining skull part trimmed. The antlers were also broken off and the remaining stumps thinned down and trimmed around the base. The two holes in the back of the skull were made by cutting and scraping away bone on both sides.
From Starr Carr, Vale of Pickering, North Yorkshire, England.
