Just curious

Post by Missbooth01 »

Hey all

So, these have been picked up and brought home over the last few months, I don’t generally go out looking for fossils but these have come home at some point.

What would they be? 😁

The Open University published (2008) an A5 booklet (with wipeable pages so you could take it with you) which helped ID fossils. It is excellent and sometimes they come up on fleabay or amazon etc.
I can recommend it. I think they now do a digital version for the phone.

Its great to keep your eyes peeled on the beach (or in the fields) I always come home with something non-metal. A lot of us do the same. ::g

Hi,
Top left, calcite vein.
Top Right, bivalve impression.
Bottom left, oyster.
Bottom right, banded chert/flint.
Rolling about naked in mud will give the wrong impression.
