  1. Hi everyone, I was walking by the riverbank of the Thames in London during a low tide and on the sand I found this tooth-shaped stone, to be honest it doesn't feel like a stone but more wood as it's very lightweight. It's about 7.5/8 cm long and the texture inside it on the top end makes me think about a bone. I'll leave it to you thanks in advance.
  2. Hi! I found this very large and irregularly shaped flint nodule on the Thames foreshore, London. To me, it kind of looks like the branching arms of a sea sponge, but I have heard that flint nodules also sometimes filled the shape of animal burrows and other things. It has a number of holes/handles in it. What do you think it is?

    Petrified…bone? Wood?

    I found this curious item in a wild space at the back of our house in London. Around 20cm long, initially thought it looked like a bone. But then picking it up was very heavy for its size, have weighed it as 1.75kg. Looks sort of like a bone from certain angles, but maybe more likely to be petrified wood? What do people think? Very curious to know what it looks like if sliced open. Would that be advised? How would one go about having that done?

    Identification help needed pls

    Can anyone identify any of these bones found by my 7 year old at Wapping pls? We went to look for the gallows at the Prospect of Whitby pub and literally stumbled upon these. She’s very excited to find out what they belonged to and has taken some to school today! We are thinking cow or horse due to sheer size and weight. Thank you ..
  7. As most of you are probably aware by now, I've spent some time recently in Ontario due to family matters. Things have taken care of themselves and I'm back home in Germany again. After the family activities had settled down, I was able to visit a couple of sites and also my good friend Kane. I would have liked to have spent time with Monica and Viola and Malcolm, but unfortunately that didn't work out this time around. Anyway, with the help of Kane's directions, I was able to visit the roadcut in the Amherstburg Formation's Formosa Reef just north of the town of that name and also managed to d

    River Thames potential fossil?

    Hi all, hoping you might be able to help me identify this tooth-looking thing I found whilst mud-larking the Thames. Some info: -It is about two inches long -The black and white part is shiny like a tooth and the brown part is more matte I have no experience in this field, so I’d be grateful to hear any thoughts you have, and if it even is a fossil at all
  9. Was digging in vegetable patch in clay soil about 20cm below surface in back garden, south-east London, UK and found this little beauty! First fossil I've found without looking for one. I especially like the lower section of the right-hand image, where you can see the pattern is an imprint rather than a protrusion (not sure of the correct terminology!) Any ideas what it could be? I've provided a scale on the image. Reminds me of a worm! I can answer any questions.

    Thames fossil, tree?

    Hi all, I'm new to this forum and wondering if you could all help me out. I found this fossil on the Thames foreshore in London at low tide. I would love to know what it came from! My only thought is that one side looks like rings of a tree and 2 other sides look a bit like bark. Would be very grateful for any help! Thanks

    Thames Foreshore Bones

    Hello, A few days ago, me and my dad had to travel to London to get my American passport renewed at the US embassy. Afterwards, my dad headed towards the cafe to get something to eat as I took a stroll along the thames foreshore. I quickly realized that there were a lot of bones and teeth scattered along the shoreline, at the time I thought they were pleistocene, but now that I've looked online it seems to me that they're "medieval", apparently the tudors and georgians habitually tossed dead animal carcasses into the river. Even so, some of the teeth I picked up were very heavy and

    Crinoid (?) - found in yard

    Found in my yard in Dorchester, Ontario on the Thames River. I've found several of these in my yard. Is it a crinoid? I'd sure love to know what an experienced fossil hunter would call it, as well as what era it might be from. Looks like there is one large one through the rock, with other little things in there.
  13. Hello!! I'm brand new to this incredible community, which I joined because I'd love to learn more about fossils. A family member found this one on a walk in London, Ontario, Canada. Hands are those of her 5 year old daughter. If I can get more information, I will. Thank you so much, in advance, for any help! Bodhi.
  14. I realized how much I enjoy seeing the posts of "virtual trips to the museum" and rock shops and shows. I thought I'd do a more thorough post on my recent trip to the UK and the Natural History Musuem in London. It was so huge and amazing and wonderful, that although I did not quite get to explore it as much as i would have liked, I am thrilled i got to go. So here's a little tour to whet your appetite for travel (or just armchair travel, if that's your thing!) . Believe me, there is MUCH MUCH more to see than this little bit! First of all - it IS a catheral! To science!
  15. Natural History Museum in London Since most of this has been covered already and recently, I won’t go deep into a tour: What I have here are some pics of what I would consider to be the “gems” of the museum. Some cool things that I hope none of you overlook whenever you visit. Very fun place, I enjoyed it even more than my last visit. Yes I brought a measuring tape with me to the museum... lol. Impressive, remarkably, huge Megalosaurus tooth. Measurement of the replica below.
  16. Haven't posted any trips in a while, although I've been on quite a few in the last while. This trip occurred this morning, about 15 minutes' walk from my backyard. It started with low expectations and ended in high reward. There was an area I've been returning to for the last six years that I've pretty much tapped out. During that span, it has been generous to me, although it is now transitioning into forest. I decided to take a resigned poke at an area next door to it where a new housing development has been in progress for the last year, and like a lot of these new tracts there i
  17. Will be making another trip to London at the end of the month and wanted to know if anyone has recommendations for dinosaur related museums, things to see, etc. Fossil hunting may be out of the question due to the cold weather, unless there is a convenient option outside of the city nearby, or train ride away then I’m all ears (can be any material). May have to wait for a warmer holiday to go out for dinosaur hunting, Isle of Wight, etc., which I believe is 2-3 hours from London if I’m not mistaken. Anyhow any bit of advice would help. I have been to the Natural History Museum in Lo

    London Finds

    Hello everyone! My wife and I were walking down on the Thames Riverbank today (Not looking for fossils for once lol) and we looked down and instantly saw some bones. We just picked these up because they have teeth in them. Like I said we’re not here for that and are in dress clothes. I’m curious about what animal they’re from, what time period and of course the legality of even picking them up. Does anyone know if we can fly with them? I need to know because we head back to Texas relatively early tomorrow. Any input is much appreciated. Thank you.
  21. My daughter found this on the banks of river Thames (London, UK) several years ago. It's 36 mm long. Can this be a part of a once-living thing or just a geological mineral? We are complete amateurs in Palaeontology, but have always hoped it's a tooth or a claw. Thanks

    Fossil sites in London area

    Hey all Next year I'll be beginning university, and I'll probably be in London, UK. Would some of you know of any fossil sites in the area around London? I'd be fine with anywhere less than an hour and a half by bus or train... Thanks for the help! -Christian
  24. On Sunday I took a trip to the Natural History Museum in London. I queued up before it opened at 10am and even before then there was a long queue. I have not visited this museum since I was a child and spent an entire day there (10am to 4.30pm - a long time). I was surprised as it is a lot bigger than I remembered and there was so much to see. This place has the most wonderful things and is an incredible place to learn. The museum showcases a Baryonyx, Sophie the Stegosaurus (the world's most complete Stegosaurus) and more! The moving Trex and Deinonychus are also really realistic in the way t
