Sponge in Flint

Almost certainly a Cretaceous sponge, preserved within a flint nodule (which formed in the Chalk around 80 million years ago)

Looks like it could've been a home joint my guess is around the late Jurassic period of cretaceous period, probably to a later animal maybe part of a spine not sure.
