Hello,

I'm not an expert but I can roughly say with some certainty that that's a mammalian Eocene bone (56 - 34 million years ago)
Some other people might be able to give a more specific ID.

Thanks!

Thanks! I wonder what mammal it was...

Eocene was marine, so not that unless it's marine mammal!

Thanks Pete, really interesting link. So it could be a diplocynodon or a palaeotherium bone? Weirdly my daughter today found a black pointy ‘rock’ which looked like a big sharks tooth. Could it be an alligator tooth?
