      I believe this is a Indian weavers comb. We use the same weavers comb (beater-seperator) today- just not made of bone.
      This comb is used to seperate the yarn and beat it down into place.
      A good find.

      It looks like it may be a scapula bone of an animal?
      That is OUTSTANDING artifact. Thanks for sharing. WOW!
