Red Deer Headdress
Mesolithic, around 8500 BC. Excavated from Star Carr, Yorkshire, England.
Made from the skull and antlers of a red deer, this headdress may have been worn with a deer-skin costume. It is believed that people used objects like this to help them look like and act like their prey, thus becoming better hunters. This suggests a particularly porous boundary between human and animal.
