Approximately 70 million years ago, during the Late Campanian Age of the Cretaceous Period, the Earth's oceans were teeming with a diverse array of wildlife. The streams and tributaries where these fossils are found go by many names: New Jersey, United States, and North America. Yet, these designations for the Earth are simply concepts created by humankind; they are arbitrary when held against the eons of nature and life that have preceded humans and that will come after humans. Through fossil collecting, a new appreciation for life on Earth is had. A humbler stance on existence is usually taken by those people who take the time to postulate the intricacies and wonders of nature. These fossils I present to you in this album are a small but beautiful glimpse into one of the many lost worlds that our Earth once was. I hope you may find use for or enjoyment from this album.

 

Example of an 8.5 hour fossil collecting trip (mixture of surface scanning and gravel sifting):

Artifacts are uncommon, but can be found in many of the streams where fossils are found.
