egyptian mystery fossils
Thanks to all who responded to the request for help in indentifying
the fossil from the temple of Set in Egypt, at the Bolton Museum, UK.
There is a tentative ID (hippo navicular), full report to come.
The curators from the Bolton Museum are investigating the possibility
of access to the crates of fossils collected by Sir Flinders Petrie
and Brunton from two ancient Egyptian shrines. The crates, shipped in
the 1920s, have been languishing unopened in the warehouse of the
Natural History Museum in London for 80-some years.
