My first response on seeing those pics was Oh Wow ! I just love finding things like that. Did you see I found a Sharks tooth a couple of months back ?
My thoughts are that it’s a Brown Bears tooth and was worn as a charm against harm way back in the early Bronze Age.
There are some interesting, recent, articles on Brown Bears if you google them. Seems like they’re going to be re-introduced to the UK somewhere near Bristol. Some sort of Theme Park by the sound of it. Lord help the locals if one of them gets loose.

                           Interesting find; well spotted. I wonder why they countersunk the hole?

Smoothed of edges would stop it fraying. That makes me wonder if it’s a claw. Animal claws are like our nails, formed with layers and they separate.

Looking at the first pic more carefully you can see striations along the length. It’s a claw!

Paul, you are a miserable so & so.  Grin. That ‘killer’ Squirel was a baby and it thought the man was his daddy.

Boars tusk in my book. I have found one before.

Interesting find.

I never thought about a Boars tusk. Much more likely and probably more modern.
Still a nice find though..
