I found this tooth is Somerset, it is probably modern, does anyone know what it is?

Looks goat/sheep incisor, to me.

Thanks! There hasn't been any sheep or goats in that field for many years, must be a few decades old.

Sorry I didn't see this, looking at horse teeth and goats teeth and comparing it to this one I would go sheep/goat but only because of size.

Sheepshead aren’t found in the UK. They are a western species.

Hmmm.  That does make the tooth less likely to be from a sheepshead.

So, how many headless sheep are running around the islands?
