Beachy Head fossil?


Recommended Posts

Hi, sorry i know nothing about fossils but found this curious round egg-shaped thing inside chalk near Beachy Head, Eastbourne, UK. The nearby clay had some similar round dark brown items inside. Any ideas what this is?

Welcome to the Forum. :) 


Unfortunately, what you have found is actually a geologic formation called a concretion.

People mistake them for eggs, all of the time. 

There are no indications of eggshell material. 


Have a look through this topic for more information.:)
