  1. 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

  3. 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
  4. 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 they move. If you like your dinosaur teeth, the Megalosaurus and Daspletosaurus teeth are out of this world! There is something for everyone in this museum and I would highly recommend that you visit here if you have not already! A lot of the dinosaur specimens are casts taken from other museums but they are still cool to look at. I had taken the photos on my SLR and due to the size of the photos I had to reduce the quality of them to be able to post on the forum which is unfortunate but it's the only way otherwise the photos would take a really long time to load. There are more non-dinosaur related photos that I will be posting at some point later on but may take me some time to pick out. Enjoy the photos from this section of the museum! Blue Zone Dinosaurs (has a mix of some photos of crocs too)
  5. I was just wondering as I collect most of my fossils in Dorset and that is very far away so I rarely get to go
  6. Archaeopteryx

    https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/science-environment-45967655. There is no greater insult you can hurl at a museum than to suggest its prize fossil is a fake.
  7. Pterosaur catalogue

    Lorna Steel (NHMUK curator of non-dinosaurian fossil archosaurs) just made available on ResearchGate an overview/catalogue of all NHMUK pterosaur collections (written in 2012). Though it is probably outdated by now, I thought that some pterosaur workers seeking to visit the collections might want a look at the paper It's too big to be posted on TFF, but I can send it by email to those who'd like a copy. Steel, L. (2012). The pterosaur collection at the Natural History Museum, London, UK: an overview and list of specimens, with description of recent curatorial developments. Acta Geologica Sinica‐English Edition, 86(6), 1340-1355. Abstract: The pterosaur collection at the Natural History Museum is of great historical importance. Most of the material is figured or cited, and several specimens are types or casts of types. Pterosaurs from UK localities are well represented, but foreign material is also present as original specimens and as high quality casts. The entire collection has been recorded in a database and curatorial improvements have been made, which has improved physical and virtual access to the collection. Although many of the specimens were collected as long ago as the early 1800s, they are still useful today. A full list of Natural History Museum pterosaur specimens is published, for the first time since 1888. Key words: Pterosauria, curation, museum -Christian
  8. Before having to teach, I decided to take a small walk along the Thames River that runs through our campus. The river runs a course of about 170 miles, and was extremely high after very heavy rains and high temperatures that melted a great deal of snow. Since then, the river levels have receded significantly, leaving large stretches of sand and transported materials. I didn't plan on doing any collecting, but where there are rocks... So these are two snaps of the bank. The deposited material went on for some distance.
  9. The Pickle Jars

    Hi TFF Last year I spent a hole afternoon with one of the curators of the Natural History Museum London. I had a behind the scenes look at the Museum's fascinating zoology collection preserved in spirit. We explore some of the Darwin Centre’s 27 kilometres of shelves,encounter numerous treasures hidden among the 22 million animal specimens housed here. with the highlight been a 8.62-metre-long giant squid court in the Falklands Islands and a very good look at some of the specimens collected by Charles Darwin himself . I did get to hold Darwin's now pickled pet octopus , First 3 photos are the Giant Squid 3,4,5 specimens specimens by Darwin the rest is assorted pickles jars thank you all for looking cheers Bobby
  10. I'm sure several of the TFF members have kids also fascinated with fossils or dinosaurs (like a famous T-rex painter, the daughter of @Monica) - here is an attraction in London you just cannot miss https://londonist.com/london/family/a-dinosaur-sleepover-at-natural-history-museum
  11. We went to the Manchester https://dinosaursinthewild.com/ but it’s also in London. A truly amazing experience, expensive but well worth the 60-70 mins. You go in a simulator back in time to 67myo to Hell Creek to station 67. It’s interactive and there are lots of actors as you walk around the various areas traveling by time shuttle to and from the Hell Creek ‘viewing tower’ on the surface. The actors are very convincing! It really is a full on experience and I don’t want to give anything away so errr I won’t. Non flash photography is allowed but I’m one that enjoys the memories rather than documenting, I might miss something. I suspect the photos might not come out well anyway Realistic? I dunno but certainly convincing to me. The organisers say it’s okay for 5 year old kids +. Hmmm, maybe a little older. Violet jumped a couple of times and nearly crushed my hand. Prices are expensive. But so is going out for a meal in a good restaurant with family, down town on beer with buddies &c. 9 of us went and we got a great deal per person which was just under £19 each including the kids. Get friends together or you could be paying £30 for an adult. Family tickets available too but grab some mates and get the max discount. Bottom line, a fantastic experience but pricy. But it’s a one off gig. If you can get to Manchester or London do it! pic is Violet in shop, to be avoided - silly money - but you knew that anyway Did I say I want to go back?
  12. I'm not sure if this has been posted before. But I just found this cool page and found that it has a lot of very useful reference for identification. So I thought I'd share the link. On here you can just browse through their collections. They have some high quality photos. http://data.nhm.ac.uk/dataset/collection-specimens/resource/05ff2255-c38a-40c9-b657-4ccb55ab2feb?view_id=6ba121d1-da26-4ee1-81fa-7da11e68f68e
  13. Can anyone help identifying these?

    Me and my girlfriend were taking a stroll through the river Thames in London and managed to come across these guys...we are not fossil experts (or beginners) and were just wondering what they could be. If you guys can help us out, that'd be great! Object A is 8 cm across with a maximum width of 4 cm.
  14. Dinosaurs at Barnes, 28th October

    Hi Folks, I hope its OK to post this here - I've found nothing in the faq to suggest otherwise, its highly relevant and The Dinosaur Society and WWT London Wetland Centre are both charities. This weekend sees our conference and dinosaur art gallery, Dinosaurs at Barnes, for which we still have some tickets. More details at dinosaursociety.com If you are about Friday and want a big dose of palaeontology then this is definitely worth attending - please check the illustrious list of speakers and artists. Many thanks, Sean
  15. http://londonpavementgeology.co.uk/ Cool project in London... soon with a free app available for apple and android. Others should follow suit.... I`ll definitely check it out on my next trip to London. "There is a wealth of high quality rock samples of all types to be seen in the capital [London], mostly visible to the public from the pavement. A searchable collection is offered here for the benefit of students, amateurs and professionals alike. Please respect the fact that in many case the geological specimens are somebody else’s property, please only take photographs, after asking permission, wherever possible."
  16. Hey all! I am in the midst of planning for a really spontaneous trip(27 May to 15 June) to UK and Europe that me and a few friends decided to go for this summer to celebrate the end of college. I am pretty much the only one crazy about fossils in the group, but they are all happy to accompany me to learn a little about paleo-stuff too. I will be meeting a couple of them who are currently in London(as students studying there) and we plan rent a car and travel to the southern coastal cities/towns of England for about 3 nights. Would really like to visit the Jurassic coast there and maybe even hunt for fossils for the first time in my life! I understand the coast is huge so please do let me know if there are any particular points of interest/areas that I must go to. On a side note, we are not sure which are the best cities there to stopover for the night(s) - thinking of going up to Plymouth with a stop in Bournemouth along the way. After the road trip we will spend a few days free and easy in London, will of course visit the NHM but are there any other paleo-related museums or fossil shops worth visiting there? We will spend a total of 9 nights in England then fly over to Amsterdam for 3 nights. After which we will take a train to Bruges and Brussels for 2 nights each, and lastly end in Paris for 3 nights. It is a really ambitious plan for us and I apologise if this is a lot to take in. We know our dates and what transportation and accommodations to book, but the tricky part is to find out the best places to visit in those countries in order to fully experience their heritage and cultures (and also fossil activities to do!). Oh, and of course local cuisine and drink (like beer in Belgium)! It will be a first time trip for all of us, so I would really appreciate any recommended stops or tips for the journey. Doesn't have to be too much about fossils, so if you also know a good restaurant or hidden gem in those countries I will be grateful if you let me know!
