  1. Please help me identify these finds from the bottom of a clay cliff in Warden Point, Isle of Sheppey a - 0.5cm thick, almost flat, smooth on the other side b - i think this is not a fossil but a handle of an old knife c - round in cross section d - this is hexagonal in cross section the remaining ones are all of the same kind and the beach was full of them, i guess they may not be fossils either but what are they?

    Isle of Sheppey fossil

    Hi all. I went fossil hunting at the isle of Sheppey, Warden point. I found this one curious item, which I initially thought was a fossilised crab carapace. It is difficult getting the photos perfect, but I hope someone can help me ID what it is. Thank you, Nico Loubser
  3. I bought this fish skull a while ago. It is Eocene aged, from the London clay of the Isle of Sheppey, UK. Although this is perhaps one of the rarest fossils in my collection, I don’t collect in the London clay often and I much more frequently collect in the Coal Measures. I have therefore decided to trade this skull for something from the Upper Carboniferous. As far as I can tell, this skull is from Rhinocephalus planiceps and everything looks 100% genuine. I bought it from a very well known fossil dealer, who I will provide the name of to whoever I trade it with. If you have anything to
  4. Hi all, I found some interesting specimens from the Isle of Sheppey. Any ideas about what they could be? Probably around 50 million years old, Eocene. From the London Clay. My guesses are: Top: Initially thought it was a fish fang, but I'm starting to doubt it because the "tooth" seems to be the same material as the "jaw". Middle: Squalodon tooth? Bottom: A small animal's ulna? Thanks in advance. Jay
  5. Hello I found this at the isle of sheppey months ago and am still unsure what it is. It does remind me of bone, I was thinking a partial jaw bone of something but unsure, any help with be appreciated, found at the isle of sheppey, Kent, UK.
  6. G'day all! After three years since my last visit to the UK, i finally returned in December 2017 for another massive collecting trip across England. This was my most ambitious tour of the UK's Mesozoic and Cenozoic vertebrate deposits thus far, with 20 days of collecting across ten different locations. These were (in chronological order from first visit): Abbey Wood in East London Beltinge in Kent Bouldnor on the Isle of Wight Compton Bay to Grange Chine on the Isle of Wight Lyme Regis to Charmouth in Dorset Aust Cliff in Gloucestershire

    Isle of Sheppey UK, Odd Balls.

    Good afternoon, I have been looking for an ID on these for a while. I have found a thread from another site where they said the following. "Thank you for your enquiry, I have shown your specimen to a number of palaeontologists who found it interesting. After carefully examining your specimen, it seems that the most likely identification is pyrite forming around a phosphate nodule. It is possible that in the first instance, it formed around something biogenic, however, sadly, there is not enough evidence to be able to tell. The Isle of Sheppey is particula
  8. Hi all, I just acquired this interesting specimen that was identified by the seller as Helicodromites mobilis. However, when trying to verify this, the images and description I've been able to find really don't seem to match. The whorls on this are flat and attached to the core. To me, it looks more like a cast of a shark egg case. Are any of you familiar with H. mobilis? Thoughts? Thanks for taking a look!
  9. Hi all, I'd be ever so grateful if someone could assist me in identify the attached photos (top, bottom and side views). Location specimen found: UK, Isle of Sheppey, Minster, along the coast walking south east towards east end, near the shipwreck. Collected: 18/08/2016 I've looked up London clay fossils finding various, similar looking structures, however it seems to me more than likely just rock/mineral formations but wasn't 100% sure, any help would be gratefully appreciated. Many thanks

  14. Today I found myself with a few hours to spare but the weather didn't look too good. The wind was strong and the clouds looked like imminent rain. I decided to risk it and head out to the beach. Wrapped up with plenty of layers and my trusty hoody I started along the shingle towards my usual hunting spot. With the strong onshore wind the tide had not receeded very far as of yet and was cutting me off from my prefered location so I decided to look around the sections I had access to. Almost immediately I spotted my first crab of the day. This was quickly followed by 2 more! Feeling lucky I

    Sheppey Teeth

    Added a couple of lovely Otodus Shark teeth to my collection over the last week. Recently finding anything of note on the Isle of Sheppey has been difficult with bad weather and mud slides covering much of the clay but over the last week I managed to get out a few times and was lucky enough to find a few crab nodules which need a fair bit of prep and a couple of nice teeth. One of which I believe to be Otodus subserratus which tends to be quite rare here to my knowledge.
