Today Henry found this on the South Harbour Beach, Fair Isle.
It looks to be hand carved ivory/bone? if you have any Idea what it is? please let me know. Age unknown?
Henry found it in the seaweed & rocks washed up below the cliff where the 50 dead of Spanish Armada are said to have been buried in 1588. so one wonders... or maybe Vikings? Over 5000 years of human activity on Fair Isle, . with the winter storms we have had plenty of erosion from the cliffs. I think it is possible that it fell from the cliff and has been washed clean and has suffered some chips and wear. But I also could wonder if it could of been washed in from one of the many old shipwrecks? Truely, It is most likely that it is more more modern in origin.
