  1. Hi My wife and I have just returned from a relaxing week on the Yorkshire coast, walking and looking for ammonites. We didn’t find much but what we did find were pretty rare. First some scenic pics: The last is Whitby Abbey which features in Dracula. First ammonite, an Asteroceras multi block. Second, a androgynoceras multi block Third Paltechioceras (extremely rare and needs glueing back together and prepping)
  2. We have purchased airfare for a trip to England in mid May. It is likely my one and only time to visit England. The majority of our time will be in the southern parts to allow my wife to fulfil her Beatles fetish and my Stonehenge desires. But we will be traveling up to the Yorkshire Coast and staying in Whitby for a few days. This is where I am allowed to devote my time to fossil hunting! From my understanding, hunting is not an all day happening due to the tides. So I want to make the most of my time. There is a guide, who takes groups out, that is available to help in Runswick Bay. Having w
  3. Apologies for the usual hiatus from here. I’m back (just like arni always says). The past 6 months have been an absolute rollercoaster of collecting and prepping. I thought I’d ease you all into one of my best finds this year. Here in Yorkshire, we have an incredible layer of fossils from what’s known as the jet rock (Whitby jet too). In this layer, we get what are known as cannonball nodules. Usually always heavily coated in a pyrite skin, and 1 in around 15 has a fossil inside. Almost always, Eleganticeras Elegantulum. This is one I found around 6 months ago. The Eleganticeras keel
  4. Last year when things weren’t so complicated with COVID, we managed to have hunt for dinosaur footprints on the Yorkshire coast. Here’s the beach looking across to Scarborough in the distance. Here are some examples of the prints we came across: Nothing fantastic but all theropods. Heres one in a block that was carry-able: I finally got around to cutting the block to size today although it was freezing outside. So here you go, Theropod Footprint, circa 5 inches long. Middle Jur
  5. These are some finds of mine made on the Yorkshire coastline... It would be truly spectacular to have very specific identifications for all of them - and even the ones that 'just' turn out to be regular stones and rocks! Regarding most, I think they're quite fragmentary... Key: 1-9 = Everything up to the first Ammonite 10-18 = Ammonite material? 19-26 = Alternative shells 27-29 = 'Olympus Mons'/multilayered rocks 30-35 = Other

    i understand that most of these are likely bivalves (?) but i am wondering the age of them or any more info anyone has on them? found in north east uk (north yorkshire). i applied beeswax to the shells exposed so they’re easily seen

    echinocnchid brachiopod

    My son and I get a lot of clams from castleton, UK but I’ve never seen anything quite like this… any ID would be fantastic. thanks
  8. Long time no see guys! Thought I’d come back with a bang. A few months back I headed out, just after recovering from covid, so of course, not back at 100%, but well enough to get some exercise. Of course, the first thing I stumble on, is a rather large nodule. Now, these nodules don’t normally contain anything, and are usually filled with a calcite core, but always fun to hit regardless. After one tap with the hammer, it revealed a cross section of a rather large ammonite known as Harpoceras (falciferum). Not a super rare Ammonite by any means, but definitely uncommon. I lost my head. Th
  9. I’ll start off my collection with the most common ammonite you can find on the Yorkshire coastline in England. Dactylioceras Commune Lower Jurassic, Upper Lias. Roughly 180myo You can find these ammonites in abundance in Whitby. No exaggerations when I say iv seen thousands over the years. You can find them in plenty of other locations all over Europe, though they’re most known as the Whitby Dac. Now, while they maybe common, size comes into play with mine. You’re usual dac, will probably be between 2-3 inches. If you’re lucky, you can get a 4 inch one, though

    Help identifying

    another ID for you guys to help me with! thanks to everyone who helped on my last post, here is another. now u have no clue what this is….? guessing a negative of a fossil or trace fossil due to only being impressions. this was found in port mulgrave on the yorkshire coast if this helps
  11. hi, i went walking in the north east of england and found this, it looked to be a fish jaw? i’m new to fossil collecting and finding as a hobby and i could be completely wrong but if anyone knows anything could you let me know? thanks it was found in a beck/stream, not directly on a coastline. could this be a fish jaw? or small animal jaw?
  12. Hi everyone, I went fossil hunting on the Yorkshire Coast a few days ago and picked up plenty of Dactylioceras ammos but not much else. Among them are these two which both cracked after an exploratory 'tap' with the hammer. I have never glued broken ammonites together for prep before but have seen it spoken about a lot. I have a few questions about how to approach this. Firstly, do you think these specimens are viable? The other issue is that I only have a Dremel to prep with so even if I glue them back together there will be an awful lot of matrix to remove..

    What is this?

    Found on a beach in Yorkshire. Not entirely sure what this is. Many thanks
  14. Hi, I found this on the bottom of a slab on a dry river bed whilst walking in the Yorkshire dales yesterday. Can anyone help identify if it is a fossil and if it’s if any interest? The slab is quite big, perhaps about 1 metre or abit less.

    hollow ribs? pterosaur?

    Hi there, I’d like to get the expert opinion of you all. Could these be pterosaur ribs? i just know they’re from Whitney, Yorkshire. As you can see, they’re hollow, and all I know of, that would have little hollow ribs like that are pterosaurs, and avian dinosaurs, but I'd imagine it was very uncommon for articulated ribs from a raptor to make it to, and “survive” an aquatic deposit, intact and untouched, although I know pterosaur bones are sometimes found in aquatic fossil deposits, at least from coastal areas. I'm not sure what else would be found there with hollow ribs, and these also seem
  16. A recent trip which i found a beautiful cannon ball full of ammonites inside. It's my best one so far.

    Unknown fossil(?) from Port Mulgrave

    Hi all, I picked up this conical object (I'm currently reluctant to even commit to 'fossil') from the shore at Port Mulgrave, North Yorkshire. It was loose on the shore so unfortunately no certain stratigraphy either. I'd be happy with any thoughts or ideas of what it could be. Thank you all so much in advance, MarineBio
  18. So this is the first prep I've attempted with my new Dremel (with specialised tips for fossils/rocks). The ammonite is from Saltwick Bay in Yorkshire. I chose this as my first practice piece as I thought that it was going to be pretty bashed up inside so would be a good one to say 'oh well' if/when I make mistakes. Sadly I now think it could have been quite nice had I saved it for when I have more experience! Anyway, to my inexperienced touch the matrix felt very sticky, with practically none of the matrix popping off nicely. I felt like I was having to carve out the ammonite and t

    Yorkshire Bone(s?)

    Hello, I found these pieces a few weeks ago at Saltwick Bay in Yorkshire. The first one is obviously bone and I assume its ichthyosaur, but bone isn't really my forte so I hope that someone else may be able to confirm this or provide an ID. It also has a kind of stone cap on the flat end, anyone got ideas on how to remove that? The second piece I'm not too sure about. The shape is suggestive to me and there are bits that seem somewhat bony in texture, but as I said, I'm not sure. Thanks

    Yorkshire Ammonite ID

    Hi guys, I’ve done a bit of prepping of this ammonite I found in Salwick Bay, Yorkshire a few weeks ago and have no idea what it is. There are two obvious tubercles and there may have been more but as you can see it isn’t in great shape..

    Yorkshire Ammonite ID

    Hi I visited the Yorkshire coast and found several different ammonites, doe anyone here have an ID for them?
  24. Found near Whitby, Yorkshire in early Jurassic rock. Could just be a Gryphaea but I thought the curve looked a bit suspicious, like it was a more elongated structure, so figured it was worth checking. Thanks in advance.

    Ichthyosaur bone block

    After a few months of many acid baths and manual prep, I finished this quality piece off this afternoon. Most likely heavily predated by another marine reptile. There’s verts, neural arches, ribs, teeth and jaw. Probably around 30 hours of prep in total. Finally have an abrasion unit on its way so all that’s left is to finish the matrix. This is my first foray into proper bone prep, only really doing smaller pieces before, and needed a challenge during this lockdown I’m the uk. Pretty happy with how it’s come out.
