Could this be wood?

Recommended Posts

Hello Everyone,

 

today I went again to my favourite Pleistocene site - and a friend of mine found something that he thinks could be a fossilised wood. He thinks it could have been brought here by the glacier.

 

It looks like this:

 

 

It's not very big, as you can see - but quite heavy.

 

Does this look like wood to you?

 

I will appreciate your feedback.

No, it does not look like wood to me.

More like small-scale boxwork structure.

But I am really not sure of anything in this case.

Thanks, I also had my doubts - but I wanted to confirm with more expert folks :)

Difficult. Where is the site (roughly) located?

It's half an hour from Warsaw to the south - it's the site where sand from the Vistula River is excavated.

Hello Kasia,

 

the look from the sides look look like a piece of a very flat bone to me. I (believe I) can see spongiosa, "embedded" between denser cortex"plates". Could be pleistocene...(?)

Hi,

 

the site is Pleistocene, but the bones I find there look completely different - both in colour as well as texture. It's pure stone. I'm also inclined to think it's just boxwork...
