Livvi's mammal jaw

Diggers may recall that Livvi found a mammal jaw on her first day back at the dig (Saturday 7th March).  Following Lesley's tradition of giving the most promising fossils easy to remember numbers, it is #200 in the Field Catalogue.  Diggers may also recall that Livvi and her friends looked for half an hour before locating the other half.  I can report that her mammal jaw does indeed have a tooth - just one, towards the back of the jaw.  The crown is in that "other half", and so delicate that Dave expects it will not be extracted and have to be scanned.  Cool.
