Great Morava bones ID


Darko

Recommended Posts

Hi.

Found these bones yesterday at gravel pits facility where workers separate big rocks from the fine sand from Great Morava river. They don't burn at all or smell like a burnt bone.

Here are some photos if someone can help me identify them : I know for one that is radius bone from Bison/Bos, but don't know about the others. 

P.s. Also u can see that one bone has something similar like "scars" from a possible flint?

Please help!

I think it is a tibia based on the end in the photo of the long view with your five fingers n it.  That is a distal tibia.  I doubt it is bison... probably something more delicate... deer.

When posting images of bones, Darko, please identify the bones serially (such as 1a, 1b, 1c, and 2a, 2b, 2c, etc.).  It will avoid confusion.

 

I agree with JPC -- the distal tibia is too gracile to be bison or bos.  Could be deer or could be a smaller bovid such sheep or goat.

Bovid or caprid for sheep or goat ? :D Perhaps I don't well understand.
