Hair comb made from part of a human skull unearthed in England

A hair comb made from part of a human skull has been identified recently from among thousands of ancient artifacts recovered during archeological excavations around Cambridge, England.

The comb, dubbed the Bar Hill Comb, was found by scientists from the Museum of London Archaeology in London, England.

The ancient bone comb, “dating from the Iron Age (750 BC – 43 AD), was found at Bar Hill, four miles (6.4km) northwest of Cambridge,” said the BBC.

The comb was among 280,000 items collected between 2016 and 2018, the outlet noted.

Michael Marshall, the archeology team lead, described the comb discovery as “truly astonishing,” according to the BBC.
