Fin whale bones 'unearthed' from horse manure

3 posts in this topic

The bones of a fin whale have been "unearthed" in Cornwall after being buried for three years to help preserve them for a museum display.

The 56ft (17m) long whale was washed up at Porthtowan beach, near St Agnes, in February 2010.

The St Agnes Museum Trust buried both 16ft (5m) long jaw bones and a vertebrae to help the remaining flesh and fat on the bones decompose.

The site was then covered in horse manure to speed up the process

Me too. Let's go with that, anyways.

Man, that must have hurt to pass!
