It is fossil?

Location:Small Cave, Zakrzówek , Kraków ,Southern Poland

I have a question what could have left the marrow from one of these bones?

Yes, but what did the bone marrow come out of in one of the bones?

 

Modern near 100 years old  and 1000 years old?

I think You are confused with language here.

The marrow is the "spongy" looking part of a bone, found in the center and only exposed when the bone is broken.

Once a bone is opened any number of small things will eat the blood rich softer tissue We call marrow.

The long bones are all hollow inside, it is called the lumen. What is left when the marrow is gone is the spongy structure near and in the apophysis.

The last picture looks like it has a hole drilled near the open end. It may have been used by man for some utilitarian reason, thusly they may have hollowed out the marrow. Many native peoples eat it as a treat.

Or the hole is the proof that the animal was hunted by humans.

You're asking to date that bone. It would be hard to make this, but considering the darker coloration of it, the specimen might be older than the other ones. In any case, I think it wouldn't be older than Pleistocene in geological time. It might be of interest for archaeologists and Quaternary geologists.

It is probably not possible to date these with available methods. Sorry.
