New bones excavated from the Stainton gravel beds.

The image above shows my latest find just above the trowel

The yellow glove marks the spot i started digging into the hard packed gravels, the new find is over 2 metres into the gravels.

The pic above shows the new find sitting above what i believe is the compressed remains of part of a preserved tree.

The gravels are visible above and below the preserved wood.

The pic above shows the fossil bone almost dug out with the blue- gray layer above.

These pics show the rib piece i have yet to identify it but it looks to have belonged to Ungulate
