We discuss the cephalaphores St. Denis, St. Winifred, better known for her holy well. As it turns out, holy wells, which are particularly prominent in Wales, are also associated with severed human heads — more often than one might expect.

Some examples and a likely a explanation are offered, and we learn which holy well until recently afforded the visitor the opportunity to employ a saintly skull as a dipper. Wilkinson seemed particularly eager to discuss it, so we leave that to him with more than a little help in the sound effects department. Scotland offers our next two stories, one which tells of a sort of headless horseman of the Highlands and some fortune-telling butter and the other of Mary Queen of Scots badly botched beheading.
The execution of Anne Boleyn also gets a nod with macabre ditty from about her headless ghost. If you find yourself horrified by the obsession with heads and head-chopping in these Celtic nations, you are not alone. Classical writers also were appalled by decapitation fixations of the northern tribes.
We hear some choice words on the subject, read by Wilkinson. The Germanic tribes too had a loose head or two in their mythology. Hear the story of Mimir, whose decapitated head Odin preserved and relied upon for counsel.
