Bone excavated from Stainton gravel beds.
The first two images show the top of the gravel layer, the cup of tea was a suprise !
In this dig section there is a layer of packed sand about 100mm thick separating the Lacustrine layer from the gravels
This is the piece bone found in the packed sand above the gravels.
In these images the bone is still in some of the packed sand.
The bone after removing the sand and cleaned, it apeares to be part of a lumbar vertebrae.
