Examine, X-ray, clean, repair, stabilize, and repack as required.
The fragments of teeth are in poor condition overall. The surface is covered with dirt from excavation and there are many small fragments.
The object was examined under the microscope at up to X100 magnification. The large fragments were brushed using a soft brush. The object was packed in a polyethylene bag with a plastazote backing for support.
Finds were discovered during the archaeological excavations before the Visitor Centre was constructed. The National trust donated all of the finds to the British Museum.
