Bobo the bear
All from Norfolk coast but wondering if anyone can possibly ID species.
Photo 1 and 2 Echinocorys maybe?
Photo 3 is a Shark tooth?
Photo 4 is another echinoid
Photo 5 and 6 probably a bivalve?
Photo 7 and 8 a very large Belemnite
Photo 9, 10 and 11 is bone but what from?
Photo 12 and 13 is some type of gastropod at a guess?

Hi Robert, IMHO,
1,2 Echinocorys sp
3 flint bit
4 echinoderm - photos all aspects needed to say more.
5,6 bivalve
7,8 belemnite
9,10, 11 Not convinced it is bone, but would be mammal.
12, 13 not sure it's anything but more photos on its own please from different angles.

Hi Colin, have included more photos as requested of the 2 items for your perusal. Photos 1-4 is the echinoid and other 4 of the shell?
The other item is def bone but as you said mammal probably ball and socket joint at one end

Hello,  I think your no 3 is not flint, but phosporite, probably a cast of a burrow; prawn/lobster.
The mammal bone looks interesting; it might possably be of a predator, could also be bear; have it looked at!

greets, Bert
the search is as valuable as the finds...

The bone is definitely a mammalian phalange (toe bone) - presumably Pleistocene, if it's from Norfolk and not modern.
Hard to say what it's from, though given the size, I'd say the proximal phalange of a deer is the best bet (they have 3 phalanges and only the last one is modified into a hoof support). Either way it's a nice find and an expert should be able to give you a more definite ID.

Could the unidentified ehinoderm be a Micraster? Only saying this because of the heart shape
