Your not digging up a 1960's foot and mouth burial pits?

hi,dont scare me like that haha...unless they buried the animals quite a distance out in the estuary, then no(would they have gone out to a low tide point to do it? they wouldn't have had much time to do it)these look and feel like fossilbones to me(plus we do find mammoth sometimes too.)

We could have changed your user name to Foot&Mouth :)
My old man came across some loads of bones when he was digging out a drainage ditch some years ago and had to contact DEFRA turns out they were from an illegal burial from a previous farm owner.
