Small Bones found under a fireplace

Hi There,


Can anyone help us identify these bones? Found in rubble and dirt under concrete in what would have originally been a fire place in a 1930's terrace. Presuming (/hoping) they are bones of a small animal(s). Can anyone confirm... not sure if we want to keep digging!


Is there a way of getting them properly identified?

    The triangular bone is a scapula (shoulder blade) of a rabbit and the bone to the left of it a rabbit humerus (arm bone). The three curved bones are ribs. The odd shaped bone with a spike and small hole is a vertebrae from a 'chop'.
