I'm almost sure it's an ice age horse tibia, but it could be modern, although I would say ice age.
Thanks my kids will be impressed if its ice age, we found it today during the storm on avon beach dorset.
Yeh, it is fascinating to imagain the age. As I said, it could be modern, but I am 95 percent sure it is ice age (so I can almost garuntee it is ice age.). It isn't a fossil, but it's a sub fossil, which means it isn't old enough to be fully fossilised, but it is starting to be filled with minerals, so almost a fossil, but it is still 30,000 years old.
Have you ever tried to find ammonites in Dorset? It is the jurassic Coast. Mary Anning was very famous for finding fossils in Dorset. She found ichthyosaur fossils, ammonites , dinosaurs and more.
I suggest you look for ammonites. They are very common and to find one is a 'magical' experience. They can be found in the pebbles, and there is big ammonite 'graveyards', but you aren't allowed to take them from the 'graveyards', but you are allowed to take them from the pebbles.
The most common species, I think is Arnioceras, but I'm not sure because I live in North England (Yorkshire), but I have gone to Whitby, which is also really good for ammonites. The most common species in Whitby is Dactyleoceras commune.
We've been to barton on sea looking for shark's teeth .Never found one , will try for ammonites when we are down that way next.we have just moved to dorset and plan on building a collection.
Don't think I can add to Dans post!
We find bones on the Holderness that come out of the peat beds that are very similar to yours, our's are usuall 1000yo and the peat that surrounds them is 2000yo
They may not be as old as 30,000 years like I first though- they are probably 1000-2000 like tabfish suggested. I hope you find some more.
Just moved to Dorset! well done and good luck building a collection.
Let us know how you go on.
