The bottom one looks like a tooth with those splayed "roots", but it's not an area I'd claim any familiarity with so I could be completely wrong 😉

These are all teeth or parts of teeth from post glacial age (modern - 8,000 yrs)

Is that something you have to report to the local museum as not an isolated find.

Well done you, not everyone is so responsible.

Not an expert on teeth, try taking a photo of your best one, if all the same, we need a view of the biting surface which is has a unique pattern and should give a clue to what the animal is. Always include a scale or ruler in your photo not a coin or object.

Thanks . I have no time for people who find anything to do with history and keep it for themselves without sharing the knowledge .The same can be said for fossil hunters on sites like tihs which are very helpful to newbies like myself :? i also found a small pile of jasper similiar to that found in scotland i thought it interesting that they had been almost placed there in clay deposits..and thanks fo advice i will do as yuov'e recommended.

As brittle star says the crowns the best way to ID them. They look like a mix of bovine and horse teeth. Hard to age they could be Equus or modern Horse or Auroch or modern cow.
