This weekend my family and I were out walking on the beach at Old Hunstanton In Norfolk, when my nephew found a skull in a rock pool. I wondered if it may of been disturbed from peat which can be found at the holme beach less than a mile away from where i found it, as we have had some very stond winds resulting in big tides. I may also explain the colour and condition its in?
I have looked into it and it seems like it could be a wildboard skull. This link http://t.co/jTaTm4AD shows it perfectly.
So any further ideas?
I'm sorry I can't see the images on that link. Your photos show what I would consider a Wild Boar or at least a hybrid or an ancient, rustic breed.
Please compare wild and domestic boar skulls on this page.
If the skull came out of the peat it could be very old - the area is well known for its quaternary fossils such as the West Runton mammoth. The best people to approach initially would be the appropriate department of Norfolk Museums.
