My name is Ben and this is the first time I have posted on here. I found this very nice organic looking rock whilst out walking in Leigh Woods, Bristol, UK. I saw two bone like protrusions sticking out of the mud and investigated further to find this beautiful rock which reminded me of a hip bone. The rock does have some intersting cracks in it that look very much like what I have seen in bones, a very organic shape and has a lot of small fossil shell debris on it certain places. As my imagination started to run wild, I imagined that the two complete holes and a third uncomplete hole were puncture holes made by a big predator. I'm not totally convinced this is a fossil but I like the rock none the less. For scale I have included a twenty pence piece in one of the shots. I would appreciate any comments on this to help me idnetify it.
PS. I found this rock near a pit which was about 5 foot deep, I think it was man made structure and is very close to a iron age hill fort. I like to imagine that what ever it is, a iron age version of me found this and thought that looks nice, I think I'll tke it home!
Something's wrong - none of your images are working (error 404, page not found).
You may need to edit your post, delete the attachments, and re-add them.
I have edited the post as you said, hopefully you'll be able to see the pictures now?
It certainly is a strange shape. But in order to gauge whether or not it is bone rather than 'just rock', we'd need some close-ups - showing the surface and cross-section. In both cases, we'd be looking for some sort of cellular structure.
I will take some additional pictures when I get and chance and post them for people to view.
