Britains largest prehistoric red deer antler antler excavated in Middlesbrough in ancient Cleveland !





Maybe some who have visited my excavations and have discussed my rights and wrongs with me, will understand the facial expression and the many words it tries to say.
 1 - This Cervus Elephus would have almost filled my drive with its Antler spread.






  2 - Sharp sand pocket in the grey deposit.
  3 - 4 - Cervus Elephus beam before excavation.
  4 - I have studied these deposits for over a year now and have never found Roman remains, nor any metal what so ever the deposits must be pre Roman..
 5 - Excavation
  6 - The gates behind measure 8 ft wide & 7ft high.  I have reported all of my discoveries, to the Archaeological groups in the local area and further afield, including Mayor Ray Mallon. I still await any interest !.


7 - This image shows a prehistoric Cervus Elephus skull piece and antlers from Holland, the antler Ive just excavated is more robust and would have most probably been  quite a bit bigger.



As with all of my excavations into this lake deposit I have never come across any signs of iron, just mineralised animal and human bone,  black quartz rich pottery pieces , and preserved clam and snail shells.
