. . . which is pretty much bull on Belzoni’s part. Watching too much television tells me that determining gender by looking at bones is not all that easy.

I see that MJT raised some cogent points, as reproduced here:

I think Belzoni perhaps believed they were human bones so, obviously, not that big. I imagine that a specialist in human anatomy examined them, realised they were not human bones and then they were passed to William Clift at the RCS. . . .

He imagines? Doesn’t he know? Hasn’t this world-class researcher found out?

So, if the bones were mistaken for human bones, then likely they were not that many of them. Likely those bones more easily identifiable as non-human were absent. Likely (as Creighton knows perfectly well) they were not all that large, not large suggesting that the animal was not fully grown, but rather a calf.

Yet Creighton continues to bullshit “bull bones” as FACT.

In 2013 he huffed and puffed about “a bit more info on those old Belzoni bull bones” in his next book:
