Stunning. Where in Sweden is this? Not going back for a couple of years but not heard of this place?
Kinnekulle is a hill along the lake Vänern, famous place for the Cambrian and Ordovician period.

Geologists on the whole are inconsistent drivers. When a roadcut presents itself, they tend to lurch and weave. To them, the roadcut is a portal, a fragment of a regional story, a proscenium arch that leads their imaginations into the earth and through the surrounding terrain. - John McPhee
If I'm going to drive safely, I can't do geology. - John McPhee

P.S. I'm glad the little tree is ok.

Hello Saurornitholestes ,
Wow, so dense. Were they mostly disarticulated?
99.99999%are disarticulated...researchers have found only 3 specimen complete in theses kind of layers
By my side, I perhaps found one....but I have to clean it to see the thorax segments.

I promise to make an update about the health of this little tree next time I will go...must wait 2 years I think ......
maybe this is what would happen if you hurt the little tree
But..when I look in details the pursuers in the picture......

At first glance I would not have expected to get that big a chunk out of that outcrop, but I have put even more work into excavating fossils at my local site! Looks like you have a complete one there... at those odds you've won the lottery!
I love the Orthoceras slab, too... I wonder if the shell is intact and can these be prepped out? I ask only because every other 'Orthoceras' you see for sale from Morocco, China, etc, is polished down to the septa.
