Information:

Original text by Cecil Williamson: 'Not much to look at. Just another skull of a dead animal, correct, but in this case it has the added interest of being recovered from a rock shrine high up on the scree slopes of brown Willy on Bodmin moor. This moorland shrine was maintained by three so-called witches residing in the Camelford area, the shrine was dismantled in 1967 after the last of this trio of strange ladies passed away.'

 

Document 9823 in the Museum's archive may also relate to this object: A couple of years ago as the picture shows this skull was in its stone inset shrine high up on the slopes of Bodmin Moor. A strange place this Moor, not so well known as Dartmoor and so unfrequented by strangers for the most part. A place where pre historic man is never far from you. A place where Spirit contact is easier than most. The methodists found that years ago. The last guardian of the shrine has had her day and Farmer's finsers creep ever higher and higher up into the high moors so our friend has come in out of the cold.
