Hi All, I’m very much an amateur and new to this site / forum. This is my first post. Can anyone please help with identification. This object was found in the inter tide mud flat region of East Mersey Island, Essex County, England, UK. Cudmore Grove Park beach location. It appears to have many features resembling bone. There is an inner sponge like area on cross section - possible trabecular structure. The shape has a clear indent groove on the assessed outer surface. My first thoughts were that it could possibly be something like a Patella. Online searching suggests a possible Femur Head part. But then that may be my desire to believe. Can anyone suggest what it may be, and if bone not rock then what could it come from given the location and geology. Many thanks for any anticipated input. Regards, Bob
Hi everyone, I went for a stroll around one of the gravel pits where i live , this particular pit i found had a lot off Upper Jurassic clay in the bottom of the pit which was overlain by Ipswichian gravel. This is the fragmented bone i found not sure if it is from a mammal....the red line indicates its 5 inches in length and about a quarter of an inch at its thickest point. Sorry about the poor quality of the photo the light was fading when i came out of the pit....would anyone know what part of the animal it might be . My first thought was perhaps a bird but im not so sure. Regards, Darren.
