Currently in the field. Wasn’t planning on going out today but I had a power outage. I’m glad I did! Just found this trumpet fibula as my first find.
I want to be cautious with how I clean this when I get back. It’s a delicate object and one or two parts are exposed so I’m worried a brush might crumble it.
How would you go about cleaning the dirt off this if you found it?
