We have people in our archive too! As well as amazing art, science & history, Victorian archives are great for fab hair. Some faves from the collection (Joseph Wright, Museum Keeper; Thomas Belt & William C. Hewitson, naturalists)

Known as a 'bezoar' - hair balls are common in wild boar and can get much bigger than this specimen. The Society had quite a collection at one time in the Hancock Museum

The things you find when browsing shelves. This is a ‘Concretion from the stomach of Wild Boar, Borneo’, AKA a hair ball. We also have a letter from 1835, gifting the Society with a ball of hair from a horse's stomach.
