Oyster shells, bones and crab’s claw 1870s

Centimetres scale: above it, oyster shells and, to the right, clinker. Above the shells, bird and animal bones, some with butchery marks. The small item, top centre/left, beneath the green and white lid for a toiletries holder, is part of a large crab claw, possibly from a crab caught near Cromer or Great Yarmouth/ Lowestoft, the nearest crab fisheries. Top centre: a ‘flow-blue’ style decorated tea cup. From the rectory rubbish at Brockdish. 1870s
