Evening. Can anyone help. I'm on the east coast and I'm digging out for drainage. Approximately 1.2m down through the clay layers I have found bones preserved in the clay. It's virgin ground. I have identified the lower jaw section of a prehistoric boar. It's identical to one on the net. It's classed as extremely rare. Tusks and lower teeth in place and have stopped digging. There are vertebrae and what looks like a shoulder blade. Is it worth digging out and preserving. If so how ? Many Thanks.

Hello Duncan and welcome to the forum. I need more information and photos of both the bones and section of the excavation. You will need to register to be able to post photos, I would also need to know where this excavation is to determine the geology you are excavating. Are you on a time limit or able to do things yourself at your own pace? Thanks
