Pity the Extinct Buckle

Sue sends this along:

Pierced skull and bones recovered
More bones, including those from a juvenile and a 14th century metal buckle were also recovered during the work.

For those of you who don't know, the buckle is extinct, hunted to death by Velcros and zippers. One can occasionally find the preserved bones of 14th century metal buckles. Contrary to what one reads on the Internets, these bones can't be ground into a penis-enlarging powder.
