Hello, this is a partial jaw with teeth; maybe of a small deer.

greets, Bert
the search is as valuable as the finds...

Hello George, if you want to know if it is recent or fossil, then heat it for 10 seconds with a flame; if it starts smelling bad, it is recent, if it does not smell at all, it is mineralized and therefore very old, probably ice age.
