Came across this whilst walking along the Jurassic coast, looks like a bone.

Hi Ian and welcome.

Most likely just flint, possibly a burrow infill, just coincidentally resembling a bone (i.e. a pseudo fossil). Can't see evidence of any bone structure where the inside is exposed.

Hello Ian and welcome to the forum. This is definately a flint burrow infill about 75 - 85 milliion years old. It is classed as an ichnofossil or trace fossil.2014+Mortimore+on+Flint.jpg

Hi

Thank for for confirming and I thought I'd found a dinosaur bone!

Thanks
