Buried Treasure

❄ Mudlark’s Advent, Day 24 ❄

A tasty little number which I willingly left foreshore side.

Attributing this whacking great bone to a cow or horse, thankfully it’s not human as “It’s a tibia, not femur, as it has no ball joint. Animal tibia tend to be rounded in cross section and often the fibula is fused in. Human tibia is more triangular in cross section. Bovine and horse tibia’s are generally longer and thicker than human, while deer is about the same length.”

Once again the mudlarking community has offered their large grey cells and I do not need to call the police.
