  1. Hi Forum Members, I would like to have some help with some identification, I believe to have found a fossilized bracket fungus, found at Walton on the naze around 1 week ago washed up in amongst fossilized tree material. At first i thought it was a crab, but when i took it home to my amazement it was to me to be a piece fossilized wood with fungus in a matrix. Also I would like to have advise on how to preserve fossilized wood ,seeds and shark teeth from London clay. As I have been told, the way to preserve my fossils from the naze. Will be the process of have them in boiling water , then let them dry and then put nail polish on them. Here are 2 photos. SHARKY
  2. Bear with me on this trip report, as I'm uploading photos from various devices and attempting to tell a non-boring tale. This past Sunday, 13 May, I went on a fossil hunting trip ALONE for Mother's Day (best Mother's Day ever)! This meant that I could be out as long as I wanted to be, no one to rush me or complain or tell me they have to go to the bathroom a million times. I had an amazing trip, and was very successful in my finds! I've been to Walton twice before and was not nearly as successful. So here we go, I left my house around 11:30am and arrived at Walton at 1pm. The high tide was at around noon, so it was just starting to go out, which I figured would be good for getting first dibs. The weather said it was supposed to be overcast and rain, thankfully it didn't rain on me, and the sun ended up coming out for a very nice day.
  3. Walton on the Naze finds

    HI everyone here are the best of my finds, found at Walton on the Naze over the past year. The big tooth on left corner I believe is an Otodus that was given to me by another fossil hunting enthusiast. Sadly didn't find it myself but it is still nice to have as a memento of Walton .
  4. Walton on the Naze

    Is there a certain area I should be looking in or to avoid when looking for fossils at Walton on the Naze? I've never been to the area before so I'm unsure of what to expect, also I'm a complete amateur so it's mainly for fun. I would like to try to come back with something, even if it's small. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
  5. Hi all, Out walking today with my wife at Walton on the Naze beach, I stumbled upon my second Otodus tooth in the space of a month. This has to be my best specimen yet and I'm really 'chuffed'! This would have come from the London Clay deposits c53mya I was wondering if it was possible to determine anything about the animal from the one tooth alone, or where in the mouth the the tooth might have come from as it seems much straighter than all the other specimens we have found. Any help would be great. Best wishes, Carl
  6. H, The family and I spent a lovely week at Walton on the Naze in Essex, UK. As it was the Easter break the site was very busy with collectors young and old, but we still managed to find some interesting pieces. The site itself is London Clay (c53my) with a junction bed above from which whale bone and Megalodon teeth can be found. Above this is the distinctive Red Crag (c.2my). Lastly are glacial deposits and later from which Neolithic and Roman finds have been found over the years. The site is rapidly eroding at a rate of about a metre a year however there are daily land slips and falls so whether that rate is accelerating its hard to say. Most of the finds are in the shingle and with my eyes I had to adopt the 'hands and knees crawl' technique to see anything other than a blur of shapes. All of the finds below (with the exception of the potential neolithic finds) are from the London Clay sediments. The Site: We found a lot of striatolamia shark teeth. Its possible there are other species within this, however we haven't had time to have a detailed look at each tooth yet: Two nice Otodus shark teeth were found by my wife: A pair of what we believe are well worn ray dentition plates. They were hard to photograph so apologies for the lack of clarity: On a previous trip a few weeks ago we also found this. Both turtle and bird bone have been found on this site. Could this be either?: I've included a fossilised twig and a seed that I picked up. The beach is littered with these and tend to be ignored by the fossil hunters as they are so common. I like them: Lastly I've included two interesting finds. The ball is from Walton and the 'spear point' was from Dovercourt just up the coast. In an archaeological context these might be exciting finds - the ball is similar to others that have been described as hammer stones, gaming pieces or sling shots. The 'spear point' shows signs of rework along both edges. Out of context, within the beach shingle, they are just interesting stones but I thought I'd share them anyway: Any comments would be appreciated. Happy Hunting! Carl
  7. We had a very productive couple of days fossil hunting at Walton on the Naze and an unexpected find on the beach at Holland on Sea while playing with my daughter. Here are the Walton finds: Firstly, left handed whelks (Neptunea) which were plentiful on this occasion (Red Crag formation) Next, Glycymeris and an oyster shell (Red Crag Formation) A handful of Striatolamia from the London Clay formation Two whale bone fragments from the junction bed. These are easy to spot due to their 'waxy' appearance. Very Tactile. An unidentified mammal bone from the Red Crag deposit. When I get a chance I'm going to see if I can narrow this down. Any ideas would be welcome. Holland on Sea The next one was a chance find from the pebble banks on the foreshore near the radar station at Holland on Sea. I was on a walk from Clacton to Walton with my family when I saw this. Its fossilised, feeling very stone like and heavy for its size. I'd love to know what kind of bone (?) this is but I'm guessing its too small to identify unless its possible to do so from the pattern of the inner cortex? Any pointers would be welcome. That's it for now. Thank you for looking.
  8. Walton on the Naze, Essex, UK

    Hi, Newbie to the forum but I've been picking up odd lumps of rock since I had fingers. I went to the beach with my wife and two kids on the 5th November and we had a productive day. Save for a few dog walkers we virtually had the beach to ourselves. We were there from just after low tide (9am) until the last moment when the sea was lapping at the steps (11:15) and as usual the girls had better eyes than me and my son. This is our trawl: Red Crag: Glycymeris: Neptunea, Oyster and a piece of broken bone (probably later): London Clay: Striatolamia plus an unconvincing core of a larger sharks tooth (I need to compare it to others I have but right now its hovering over the bin) Fossilised Wood (I love these as they are so well preserved but for some reason these are left in their 1000s strewn across the beach) (Much) Later: Lastly I'm including some things found that are a throw back to my Archaeology days. I'm putting these in the 'possible' category. The left hand flake shows signs of rework on the right edge. The second (on the right) is badly photographed but has all the elements that would describe it as a man made flake - at the top is a flat 'striking platform' and on the side facing us is a 'bowl of percussion'. I would love to find a finished tool that can occasionally be found here, That's it. A great morning fossicking, followed by a walk along the sea front and then down to the pier for 10 pin bowling with the family and wasting money on the pier amusement arcade!
