More prehistoric mineralised bones descovered at the Stainsby beck location

These three bones were found yesterday at the Stainsby beck lake deposits, i am certain the tibia belongs to a huge extinct moose or megeloceros, the bos skull was found close by and only two metres away from important human bone's and artifacts, as well as an identical bos skull i found last year.
 1- Prehistoric Bos skull






 2 - Prehistoric Cervidae Tibia.










 3 - Rear of the Bos skull, note the condition, i only ever wash and dry the fossils i excavate or find in the beck bed.





 4 - Note the shape and muscle attatchments, there are obviouse differences when compared to a Bos tibia.



 5 - The tibia would have measured between 40 and 45 cm, it matches a shire horse tibia i have in length.
