Pilsdon Pen



It's thought perhaps that the famous 'Screaming Skull' of Bettiscombe Manor is the remains of one of the original (prehistoric) inhabitants of Pilsdon Pen. You can read more at Castle of Spirits.

or get the lowdown from Mr Udal here:


Janet and Colin Bord (in Prehistoric Britain from the Air) describe how inside one of the excavated huts on Pilsdon was a crucible, with beads of gold still attached: a goldsmith's workshop.
