3 - The Canis ulna on the left was excavated deep into the deposit, the larger Canis ulna was found at another location.
6 - I also excavated this piece of black flint from deep into the deposit, i don't know a lot about worked flint but this piece could have been.
The Stainsby collection to date .
The image above shows the fossil bone and artefacts excavated to date from the prehistoric grey deposits at stainsby beck, in the south west of Cleveland North East England . The Human tibia shaft is not shown as its not in my possession any more , as it was handed over to the Anthropologist, as were the other Human bone finds from this area .
The bone and artefacts excavated to date include bones from at least one Human , and seven different animals including , Capra , Equus , Bovine , Canis , Cervid , Pottery ime told that looks to be iron age , Preserved leather shoe sole , with intricate stich holes and possible bone decoration , and possibly worked black flint . All can be viewed in earlier posts .
I must stress that the mineralised bones found and excavated in this and other areas , including several Human pieces are ancient ! and have been deemed so by a forensic anthropologist from Teesside university .
