fossil bones?

Hello

 

since I found my first bivalve I think I`ve been in every single beach in Scotland to seek for some

fossils,I gathered some bones, and I would like some help to identify it

as I really would want to keep some human or cow bones at my house

unless its fossil

Thanks a lot

    Hello,

    I recognise no.5 as the calcaneus (heel bone) of (likely) a cow. You may have found the remains of a butchered cow. No.3 is a rib, but this and others are incomplete, so I'm not sure how easy it will be to ID the bones. No.1 seems to be the body (middle part) of a cow's femur.

    Yours,

    Florin

    None of these are human bones. Please do note that if you ever find any bones which you think might be human, you must notify the police.
