Further refitted antler fragments cannot be listed using the scheme used for the other refitted antlers because the finds disintegrated, either in the course of excavation or during preparation.
Disintegration occurs along cleavages in the material, crushed areas of the antler fragments or along previously repaired breakages. Seven of these refitting units are each subsumed under only one inventory number, prohibiting a description as before.
Shed antler, left. The only complete antler in the Bilzingsleben antler
material. Broken into five major fragments, the antler is crushed and deformed by contact with other finds. The breakages
happened as a result of sediment pressure.
Antler base fragment, unshed antler, right. This find disintegrated into
two parts during laboratory work. The disintegration occurred along a cleavage when the antler was touched.
Unshed antler, fragment, left. Two pieces belong to this refitting
unit. They were found lying close together; the breakage is heavily encrusted with carbonate and a mechanical refit is therefore
impossible. The find comes from the shore terrace, from planum b, close to the shore line.
