Details

Turtle limb bone fragments collected from the Eocene Bracklesham Beds of Lee on Solent, Hampshire. It is undetermined from which species these bones belong but they appear to be fragments of the ulna or radius.The anatomy of turtles has remained relatively unchanged since their first appearance in the Late Triassic and bones just like these can be seen in modern turtles. Bones such as these provide useful information when interpreting a prehistoric environment; for example, on the basis of their sedimentological and fossil constituents it has been interpreted that The Bracklesham Beds were laid down on a shallow marine shelf. The beds have yielded fossils of over 160 different species of fish and the beds continue to be productive today despite having been pillaged by collectors for over 100 years. Each bone measures approximately 40 to 45 mm in length and is supplied in a small plastic bag with an information label.
