    Newbie.. What is this?

    Hi I spend a bit of time on dog walks looking for palaeolithic flints with varying degrees of success. However the other day I found the thing attached and I can't tell what it is. I'm pretty sure it's a fossil... perhaps a plant or branch or maybe a worm cast. As you can tell I'm no expert! Found in Steyning, West Sussex UK.... chalk and flint country!

    A Fossil A Day.....

    A Fossil A Day....keeps the blues away! Or something like that... I started an Instragram account (jamielynnfossilquest) and am posting a fossil a day, so I figured I should do that on here, to REAL fossil enthusiasts! I'm a few days behind, so I will start out with a few more than one a day but then it will settle down to One Fossil (but I will admit, I'll probably miss a few days, but I'll double up or whatever.) I'll start with Texas Pennsylvanian era, but will branch out to other locations and time periods, so expect a little of everything! So enjoy A Fossil A Day! Texas
  3. Hi everyone, I purchased this Lyme Regis specimen a few weeks ago and have been working on it with a pin vice and Dremel (with the proper fossil/rock appropriate tips) and am fairly happy with my progress. I am quite new to prepping and this is the first multi block I have attempted. The rock is not terribly hard for the most part but can be a bit sticky. Yesterday, whilst trying to uncover an ammonite in the corner of the rock, I uncovered another ammonite, and then another, and then a bivalve. The three ammonites are all pretty much on top of each other and I don't k
  4. So, I thought I would start a similar thread to the "Fossil from Each of the 50 States" thread. But one for the UK. Show a fossil from each county in the UK - England,(48), Wales (22), Scotland (33) & Ireland. And for Ireland, we can include Northern (6) and Southern (26).

    mammal fossil?

    Hi, I have found a fossil? which i couldn't find out what animal it came from. It looks like from a horse but I'm not sure, so i need some help, please. I found it at the East Coast of England, Shotley Gate beach near Harwich.

    Sponge, skin or what?

    Found on Pakefield beach Suffolk UK. Any ideas as to what it could be please.
  7. I was reading about the mass excavation of coprolites in the UK from the 1800s to WW2 and was wondering if there is any modern coprolite mining still going on there. I can't seem to find any so I'm guessing all the mines are closed and boarded up but just find it surprising that something that was once so common that it was ground up and turned into fertilizer on an industrial scale can now only be found in museums.

    Shale/mudstone fossil or mineral?

    I am back with another one I cant quite work out! Being quite amateur I am still learning, so apologies if I'm mistaken on rock type etc. This was found on the jurassic coast of the UK, on the beach near Charmouth and is in shale/mudstone so already trying to break apart as you can see. I've been wondering if it's a sponge or root of some kind, or just mineral like pyrite as it has a goldy metallic sheen in some light, although it seems too brittle for that and has got what looks like more calci(?) layers when I look at the ends. Any help from all of you lovely lot would be grea

    ‘Tooth’ fossil ID help

    Hello! I’m looking for some help finding out what this could be… A few people have suggested a mammal claw, squid beak, therapod(?) tooth or just a piece of flint! Found at Highcliffe beach, Dorset, UK in amongst the shingle and shark teeth. Any help would be very much appreciated. Thank you.

    ID required, please

    Hello all. Today was our first First foray into ‘shark tooth hunting’, as my kids put it. Found a fair few red herrings (crab claws) but also found the attached. We would love to get an ID if possible. Just over 3cm long and 1.5cm wide. Found along North Kent coast (Uk) much obliged Ben
  11. Hi all! I've just found this curious stone on the Lyme Regis beach, during a low tide, between some other rocks. I was trying to crack it open but I had to stop as it looked to be containing something more delicate. I'm sorry for the poor quality of the photos. It has a thin layer of grey stone on the top part, and underneath it there is a golden patina that reflects the light mixed with a brownish sort of varnish (similar to when fossilised bones are prepped, that sort of texture). It has a circle of a different colour on one of the shorter side that reminds me of a sectione

    UK ammonite need help indentify

    Hi everyone! I got those ammonite from a friend but he don’t know the species and exact locality because he buy from a shop. These from UK and likely Jurassic age. Does anyone have information about these ammonite please help me ID it. Thanks
  13. I've been seeing picture of small Iredescent purple pyritic ammonites found the in UK, I've looked unsuccessfully for a location online. Can anyone help? Thinking south space, maybe Somerset as the colouration is similar to those found in Watchet. Thanks in advance!

    Coprolite identification

    Hi, picked this up at Aust today, only looked twice after seeing a video on icthyosaur coprolites found at charmouth. It has a lot of material in and the same pear shape, hard to identify anything expect for one possible shell.. Any help appreciated thanks. Happy new year!

    hi i found this today in northumberland in carboniferous rock. could this be a trilobite?
  16. Hello, I wanted to ask about this partial claw I came across, identified as a Nuthetes destructor dromeosaurid hand claw found in Hastings, Wealden of Sussex of the UK. It measures 0.5 cm. From what I can tell this species has only been described from teeth and partial jaw fragments, and @Troodon told me that Nuthetes being a tooth taxon is not even described from this locality. He also wasn't confident that it is even dinosaur/theropod. What could it be?

    Hi, I live on the Isle of Wight which I know has a good reputation for fossil finds so I want to make the most of living here and get out looking for some. I was just wondering if there are any laws regarding fossil hunting like if I find something am I allowed to keep it or do some things have to be declared if found in certain areas. I know with metal detecting there are some regulations that can catch you out. Thanks.

  19. Hi, can anyone help with an ID here, found in Dorset, UK. Its big, 10" across.. Thanks in advance!

    Horn Coral?

    Hey everyone!! I sent pictures of my fossil, that I found on a Devon beach a few years back, to a museum in the UK to see if they could help me identify what it was! I personally thought it looked like a claw! And my sister thought a mussel! Turns out it was neither! I have attached the lovley little reply I received from the gentleman at the museum so you all can read too! It’s a Horn Coral! Which is a solitary coral, that became extinct many MANY years ago! Pre-Jurassic Period! I'm posting here in the hopes that anyone else might have any more info

    What is this

    Hi all I was out with the kids and found this ,is it a leech ?
  22. I have come across these 2 fossils whilst digging a trench in work, I'd be grateful if anyone has any information for me, these where in the same rock/stone. Thanks Also I'll get better photos when home.
  23. Hi people, I have a query regarding the contents of some siderite nodules from a Duckmantian fossil forest site in N Wales for my PhD project. I had thin sections made of parts of several nodules and they all seem to have an abundance of 'faecal pellets'; rounded, often curved (banana-ish) shaped, mostly stratified pellets. These pellets have been replaced by siderite (FeCO3) and sometimes include pyrite and seem to have been the locus for early sulphate reduction by bacteria before conditions arose for the siderite precipitation. I've attached SEM images of the thin sections
