The legends surrounding the guardian/screaming skull start in England in the 17th century and have become twisted over time. It began as a tradition of keeping the skull of a deceased patriarch and was said to scream if ever removed from it’s place. Despite this warning, they were actually known as guardian skulls and were usually kept in a customized nook within an important room in the house. The skull was the embodiment of the luck for a household or family.  Since then, fiction writers from the Victorian era (and onward) have designated the Guardian Skull with a more ominous meaning through countless ghost stories and thus the folklore surrounding the newly named “screaming skull” spread like wildfire.
