  1. planning ahead for a trip in the UK

    Natalie and I are planning our holiday to the UK, We are planning to reside from saturday 20 july to 24 july on the isle of Wight were we went last year. And from the 25th until the 28th we are planning to do either the coast of Sussex or Dorset. This is where the advise of the TFF members come in, what would you advise us to visit, either Dorset or Sussex. Of course if any member is free on one of those dates and is willing to guide us around this would be even better. We also take a bunch of Belgian fossils along for possible trades. (we are especially interested in cephalopods and marine reptiles/dinosaurs ) Cheers Kevin and Natalie
  2. Help ID please

    Found on a river bed in Sussex, south coast of England. No idea what it is. Any ideas ? Thanks
  3. Picked this up on the beach today. I'm still a noob, but having lived in East Sussex for a few months I've become pretty adept at identifying our local fossils (if it isn't a sea urchin, it's a sponge), but this new thing has me stumped! Initially I thought it was some kind of coral, then on further inspection I thought maybe the top part of an ammonite (or mollusc) shell. Now I'm coming back round to thinking it might be an echinoid, but I can't explain the strut-like structures (surely not spines!?). The Details This was found on the beach near Rottingdean, East Sussex, UK. That means it is likely late Cretaceous (NB: worth noting that I have been told a good deal of the pebbles on the beach have been imported, and the local flint is typically a dark black-grey, so while I assume that most finds are cretaceous this could potentially be from... anywhere) The area is a couple of miles west of Peacehaven, home to several giant Parapuzosia ammonites, and a much richer seam of google hits / background information Photo #1 Photo #02 Photo #03 Right hand side (note triangular markings): Photo #04 Left hand side - good view of the extremely fine strut like structures Finally, if anyone has any thoughts on splitting/ extraction / prep, they would also be gratefully received!
  4. Hello all! I recently moved into a fossil rich area and have found myself coming home from beach walks with arm-fulls of interesting rocks. I am still very new to this! Most of my finds have been echinoids and sponges (sometimes both in the same rock!). However this guy, while obviously an urchin, is still somewhat of a puzzle. The Details This was found on the beach near Saltdean, East Sussex, UK. That means it is likely late Cretaceous. The area is a couple of miles west of Peacehaven, home to several giant Parapuzosia ammonites, and a much richer seam of google hits / background information I found the fossil in a large chunk of chalk (photo #3). This is my first time extracting and cleaning a fossil. I mainly used a dental pic, tootbrush, water and a little distilled vinegar. The echinoid is about 5cm in diameter There are two features I would appreciate your expertise in identifying: The pale whorl of scales, which to my eye doesn't follow the natural shape / contours of the echinoid The small fin-like feature most clearly seen in photo #2 Thanks in advance! Photo #01 Photo #02 Photo #03
  5. Hi everyone, I need some help identifying something I found yesterday when I went through my newly acquired fossil matrix. Some information on the matrix, it came from the Hastings Bone beds, Weald Clay, Wealden of Bexhill, Wealden Supergroup, Bexhill, Sussex, UK (Cretaceous, Valanginian, 135 million years old) To me when I found it, it looked like skin, not like the crocodile scutes I am familiar with , but really more like skin. But since I am not really an expert on the matter is doesn't really matter what I think it might look like. I do know dinosaur fossils are common there and I do believe skin has been found on that location before (at least footprints with scale impressions) Does anyone have a clue on what it might be? Skin (reptillian, dinosaurian, pterosaur, shark, fish)? Skull plate of a fish? a croc scute? a mouthpart of a fish? Something entirely else? Thank you in advance, and I am very eager to hear what you guys think about it, no matter the outcome, I am very excited to find out what it is.
  6. Barry tooth

    So on the popular auction site their is a ‘Barry’ tooth for sale would like to add to my other one since this appears better condition but I can’t tell from the pictures what I think about it. any input??
  7. This is a great fossil forum. A wealth of information. Lots to educate the passionate collector. I want to share a few more of my latest finds with members of this fossil forum. I hope you all enjoy the pics. These are some of my best discoveries made in my Hastings Wealden bonebed collection this past week. First off is this lovely Dromaeosaurid tooth. It took me a few hours, but I managed to prep out both sides. My best find in a while.
  8. Seaford Head rockfall

    For all of you that visit here,there should be more treasures being weathered out as a third major cliff fall has dumped 50,000 tonnes of chalk on to the foreshore.More is expected.Unfortunately one person has died believed to have fallen from the top.Please take care.
  9. Found this rather nice dinosaur footprint a while back in Fairlight Cove, posted it as it is nice & clear (& I like the colour contrast). Geology dates to approximately 143 - 139 mya. There is also a nearby sunken forest thought to be 6,000 years old + that is usually overlooked & unknown to the majority of the beachcombers. Not a location I often go to, but it is a great site and I will have to go back soon. Happy days fossil hunting!
  10. Sussex Field Work (2015)

    Sussex is an interesting region in terms of geology and paleobiology. An amalgamation of different formations crisscrossing the larger Moncton Basin, this area was the target of study by local and foreign interests. Sussex is known for its potash mines, but one shouldn't forget the importance of the rich fossil localities doting the region. One such discovery was probably evidence of Canada's oldest forest, which is of significance. Matt Stimson, along with other professionals in the field, did some work in the area. I've had the chance to assist on occasion in a few field trips. The work done in this region is still ongoing and soon to be published. This time around we decided to target an area I've never gone or attempted to go yet. I'm used to quarries, but this time we would be spending the day at a road cut. Me and my braids Matt getting ready It was a few days after the Christmas holidays so it was kinda cold. The wind was nippy but we were lucky that ice hadn't formed yet on the ledges and that snow hadn't blanketed the area. The day started kinda grey but by the afternoon, the Sun had come out. It was a welcome event as the wind was freakin' cold. We made our way to the center cut. Traffic wasn't much of a factor as you can see cars coming from miles away, and plenty of space to park my car off the road. Area of Research: The rocks here are comprised of several units of interbedding sandstones and mudstones. Within these units, some several meters thick, are shale layers. Within these layers are indications of both plant and aquatic biota. Traces of fish material, scales, teeth, bone, are contained in some of the layers, forming some small limestone lenses and strata. Other areas along the cut feature plants. In all this mix, there are trackways. The work in the area is ongoing so all the data hasn't surfaced yet until publication sees the day. The cut showed signs of faulting, backed by folding. This looked promising We found many invertebrate trackways such as diplichnites and rusophycus. Most were very well preserved, even though exposed to the elements. From traces to scales and teeth, the record showed a high level of activity, condensed. The work goes on. We reached a spot where we encountered plants. I don't remember if these were referenced or cataloged previously. The preservation was fair, and we were able to find a good number of specimens. The New Brunswick Museum lab will have new specimens to work on by the end of the day. One of many specimens Root system Plant specimen showing shoot/stem and leaves We've covered only a small portion of the area. Different zones have been targeted for future study. Having done work for the past Summers, I can see why Sussex and its surrounding localities have been visited. The amount of fossils in the around is astounding, especially when talking about trackways. The work continues... - Keenan
