Very old bone on beach - but what is it from?

Dear All,

 

Can anybody identify this bone? It was found on a beach in North Kent at very low tide. It is very soft and falling apart. Bits of mammoth teeth have been found there (and those were totally falling apart too) so it is probably from the Ice Age. It seems to have a socket at one end, so could be a shoulder-blade, but it doesn't look like a shoulder-blade from any animal I can think of.

 

Many thanks

Peter

    hi

     

    Just a thought, as I know little about bones is the base of an Elk or similiar species horn/antler
