Stainsby beck Prehistoric Mineralised wood excavated from Iron Age deposits.
1 - This piece of mineralised wood was excavated from the ancient lake bed deposits at Stainsby beck.
3 - The mineralised wood like most stone and bone found in the south west area of Cleveland is magnetic, this phenomena has been reported many times to Geologists by myself.
4 - The thicker veins seem to be totally mineralised, calcite maybe. I believe this wood was utilised, before it ended up with the bones and artefact's also found.
