New bones found in Stainton gravel beds.

This is my latest fossil bone find in the gravel beds in the Sainton area.

Its the lower front section of a mammal jaw, as yet unknown.

I believe the bone may well have been carved like other items found close by.

This piece found close is the joint that the atlas vertebrae fits to at the rear of the skull.

As yet unidentified but i am sure its not bovine.

Note the ever present shine to these bones dug from the Stainton gravel beds.
