This year's second hunt was successful, considering the snow. There is still a bit of snow covering some places. I was still lucky enough to find some ok fossils. The area where I found these trilobites is called fossildalen/fossilvalley in slemmestad (i`ve showed pictured from the area before). The fossils here in the area stem from the time periods of Cambrian, Ordovician and Silurian, a period of 541 million to 419 million years ago. At that time, Slemmestad was a seabed in a relatively shallow sea. The trilobites fossils I found are about 420 million years old I believe. I found around 10 trilobites or parts of them.
Maximo Alfonso https://roykenbibliotek.no/trilobox/ took us to a local foundation excavation in Slemmestad and we collected these two, above and below, which apparently have potential to be prepped, if someone can do it. The Trilobox just had its grand opening, here are some specimens. Cheers, Gordon Asaphus expansus
