    First thing I would do is shoot the site with a GPS to mark the exact spot. Then I would take the bone fragment to either a hospital or university/college and get verification that it's really human from someone that knows what they are doing. A university then may want to age it to see how old it is. If it is of the right era they may want the archeology department to check the site out. If they aren't interested then that's about all there is going to be to it. You'll just have to drop it and always wonder. Just my 2ó

    It is too small to be an adult tibia, if human remains, it would have to be a child's

    Might be a pig or cow bone from a trash pit or defunct privy nearby that got dozed.

    No worries, that's either cow or pig. Too hollow to be human and too big to be deer. HH
