Bone excavated from deposit above Stainton gravel beds.
All images and information was immediately sent to Tees Archaeology and the fact that this is a large cervid radius and ulna found in this condition in ancient river gravels seems of little interest.
I have at the present time no way of knowing how long it took the beck to cut through the ancient river gravel layer so can't say how long this process takes. But bones found with the orange staining and concretions still attached have obviously been released from the river gravels more recently.
