The bizarre collection of swan’s feathers, dead magpies, human finger nails, hair, unhatched eggs and other artefacts, have been found in a number of pits which were perfectly preserved in peat land.
Since 2003, 35 feather pits have been discovered in an area of peat just 30 feet by 50 feet; and it is thought that are many more hidden under the marshy grasses.
