Antler hammerhead and remains found in Irish cave

The 350-500-year-old remains of a teenager and a prehistoric antler hammerhead have been found in a cave in County Clare, Ireland.

Dr Dowd said “the discovery of the fabulous antler hammerhead is hugely exciting. I can’t find any other parallels in Irish archaeology.”

The antler came from a red deer stag aged over 6½ years old. She said the hammerhead “is likely to be prehistoric” but tests have yet to be completed to confirm the date.
