I bet if they died in battle the heads are people they beheaded in the fight.

The taking of heads of defeated enemies, and proudly displaying them was an ancient Celtic custom. Perhaps these two still followed it - though it would be a bit outdated by the 15th century...

" And when the stars go out
You can hear me shout
"Two heads are better than none,
One hundred heads are so much better than one".
