The sheep shown in the photographs above are a type of ancient sheep which were not shorn: the wool was plucked from them or gathered from the fields.

Boar 1964

Boar 1968

The two photos above are of wild boar. Archaeological evidence shows that wild boar was important from the first Irish settlement during the Mesolithic Period until the 12th century CE. Their disappearance as wild animals coincided with the arrival of the Anglo-Normans whose intensive agricultural practices reduced the native woodlands.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
