We found this today whilst digging a very sandy part of our garden..any ideas? In Wethersfield Essex

Looks like a shell. And then inside looks like bones ..  20200513_223048.jpg  20200513_223030.jpg

Possibly a sponge with a fossil shell (bivalve) on the side

I agree with Gary - flint outer enclosing the remains of a sponge and bivalve or brachiopod.

Thank you for your response. What sort of age would these be?

Hi, sorry these were fossilised in the Late Cretaceous around 70 - 85 million years ago.
