In this episode Stacia and Siofra discuss the screaming skull hidden somewhere in Burton Agnes Hall, a location that has become famous for its gardens and seasonal displays of flowers such as snowdrops.

They investigate other screaming skulls and try to verify some of the elements of the strange yet fascinating phenomena. Stacia looks into how much it costs to buy a human skull, but is fairly disappointed with Siofra’s guesses at a price.
