IoW jaw-bone or just wood?

Recommended Posts

Sauroniops

I recently bought a lot of 3 unidentified dinosaur "bones" from Isle Of Wight. But one of them have got me in a bit of a pickle. 

 

There's not really any cell structure present anywhere, except from one small spot that seems to have some. Which makes me suspect it's wood. But the overall structure of this piece is really puzzling, because it looks like there are sockets or roots from a jaw in it. I hope someone with more knowledge about IoW fossils can maybe explain what this is.

After a second glance, I think I'm gonna pull back what I said about this looking wood-like. It's more similar to some weathered bone. Kinda as if someone had prepped this with water and scraping-tools.
