Hello! I am in Brampton and need some direction on where I can go to do some fun hunting. anything in the Caledon, Georgetown, Brampton areas? or within 45 mins of these areas? not concerned with what type of fossils. just love finding history! thanks so much!!! - also - are there any groups that get together in these areas? trips? clubs ect?
I thought I would share some photos of fossils and an arrowhead I found over the last few years from Caledon State Park in King George County, Va. I know of no other posts anywhere discussing fossils located at this site in Va., although, the fossils at this location along the Potomac River are not very abundant. Sometimes I go down there (1.9 mile hike on a dirt road to the beach) and find nothing. More typically, if you search for 2 hours along the beach there, you will typically find a few small shark teeth; on a good day maybe 10 teeth. Every now and then, one may find a small bone fragment and every once in a while an arrowhead (I’ve only found maybe 2-3 arrowheads here). The fossils are Paleocene in age (66 to 56 million years ago). My best finds are a few Otodus sharks teeth shown in the photos. I might mention that I went to this park probably 25 times before I found even 1 Otodus tooth, so these are very rare at this location.
