Whilst looking at the exposed areas I came across a few small sections of wood etc before I noticed this bone half buried in the peat deposits (I therefore believe it to be cosistent with the age of the peat). I initially thought it to be an antler, but once lifted, the socket joint was visable therefore I assumed it to be bone. The size suggests it to be from a reativly large animal, but here my knowledge of what it might be ends and my call for help begins.
Any information on the type of animal would be gratefully recieved as would any information about whether I should contact anyone else (Cornwall Geoconservation Group) as from the basic research I have done there doesn't seem to have been too many bone finds made from these areas.
I'm not the best at answering bone ID's (in my last effort I miss identified a birds sternum as its pelvis ) My first thoughts were for a Cow pelvis but the cusp looks interesting so I will go with a Deer
I hope someone more knowledgable comes along but a visit to a local museum is recommended alternatively a chat with an old butcher
