sub-fossilized long bone, semi fused, Kent find.

Pulled out of organic rich black mud, 100 metres out from shore, at the end of a spit at low tide at Swalecliffe, Kent. The area has produced mammoth remains, wooly rhino etc in the past.


Its partially mineralised, very heavy. As you can see it appears to be the equivalent of a forearm bone. However it seems to be two bones partially fused, maybe due to disease or old injury repair?


Length:34cm, width at middle of shaft: 3.5cm


Any ideas would be really appreciated!



Research has shown, this is probably a radius and ulna of some form of horse, but due to its being partly fossilized what type?
