After last week’s exceptionally tricky object I’ve decided to give you something that should prove a challenge, but which will hopefully be a bit more straightforward than the last one:
This specimen is about 7cm at its widest point and it was chosen by Cat, an osteoarchaeologist who has been volunteering at the Horniman with me for the last couple of months – she’s helping me to consolidate and organise our osteology (that’s bone) collections.
Do you have any idea what this might be? Feel free to make your suggestions and ask questions below – I will do my best to answer, although it may take a bit longer than usual as I have to give five Science Week talks in a row today (for the second time this week). Good luck!
