    None of these objects appears to be bone, much less claw marks on bone. Why do you think they are bone, Steve?

    Well, Steve, our purpose here is not to evaluate your experience. It is not enough to claim to be an expert; you must have evidence that these are pieces of bone.

    Bone does not produce wavy, parallel contour lines when it erodes (as in the first object). Wood does, though.

    Sooo . . . Present your evidence, and we'll give you feedback.

    That's too bad. I didn't want to drive 'steve71' away . . . I just wanted to see his evidence. Come back, Steve, and tell us what you've discovered about your specimens.

    Hi Steve71,

    I think I found an answer to your question. Here's a link showing several Bone pics and the 11th pic down on this page shows cut marks just like on your bone. And scroll down further and you'll see a few more with marks similar. At first I thought the marks were from where Indians/Paleos would score the bone (or wood) to attach their stone tools to the "Handles" (with sinue or such and help it from slipping)...Then I found this website and wanted to pass it on.

    Ancient Native American Indian Artifacts, Relics and Arrowheads - Bone Tools Page 1

    Hope this helps..it's the 11th pic down

    MinerGirl...

    P.S...Possibly the score marks are gouged into the bone on purpose and this would keep the bone from Splitting Length-wise. Looks like yours may be unfinished or it was used as a handle.....Oh, I don't know about your second pic...

    those are some nice pieces of fossilized wood. almost positive that's what they are. the marks on them are no less interesting because of that fact.

    I know very little about fossils, but that looks like bone in the 1st and 4th pics...if someone handed me that and asked what it was I would have said fossilized bone.

    By looking at your recent photo's Steve, Your pieces look very much like fossilized wood and not bone. The appearence of pores continuing towards the outer edge suggests to me that it is fossilized wood and not fossil bone. Bone tends to have a more denser outer layer protecting the more porus inner layer. As for the ''claw marks'', this may be what they are, who knows. Congratulations on your find! P.S. In the 2nd photo in your latest post, the visable line going up the piece could be a wood borer track, not normaly assocated with bone.
