The next five images show what i and others that have viewed it think is a very large cervidae humerus and ulna piece, note the cracks this piece seems to have been cracked due to the immense pressure it has been under.

And last but not least the last image shows a Human tibia shaft excavated deep into the packed beds at my main dig at Stainton,    I also excavated Human skull fragments and an arm bone that i did not have time to photograph, the bones are now in the possession of the Cleveland police Anthropologist, please note all of these pieces have been washed and dried no more !
All of the pieces above were carefully excavated from deep into the packed previously undisturbed gravel beds
