Welsh Wizard: I think you are barking up the RIGHT tree, "skull bones" 

 I was googling images, for 'curved fossil bone' and came across: atlas bone, (2nd cervical) vertebra - supports the first cervical (axis) which is ring-like (as in the pic) and allows the head to rotate.

I think that the curving bone is suggestive of an atlas bone... Of what though, I have no idea?????

Found this at Kettleness. Am not sure what the long geometrical thing is laying across the bone ?

Howie,the long thing looks like a Twix finger. Are you sure you didn't leave it there while you were having a cup of tea ha ha.Sorry but still can't figure out what the other bones . Very well prepped and interesting piece. Maybe Byron will know

Hi Howie

Interesting find. It's always difficult to tell from pictures but they look like skull bones to me. The vertical bone looks like a quadrate from behind eye socket. And the big bit looks like the top of a skull.

I agree , Byrons your best bet.

Regards
