Hi Rab,
 

your sternotaxis is pretty nice- very hard to find without damage or deformation. I think the spine imprints are probably casts of inoceramid shell fragments. Knowing nothing of Suffolk I would be very interested to know where your nearest surface deposits of chalk are. Do the ploughed fields in your area turn up much flint?

 

Cheers,

 

Hooken
