Fermented Bone
The brittle bones of a buried female's tibia, showing a fracture. Analysis of this and other remains found at Scotland's Cladh Hallan,  determined the bodies were subject to an acidic environment in a peat bog that fermented them and enhanced preservation. Study of this particular bone revealed the woman's knee was broken prior to burial, but long after her death.
