Hi there!

 

I'm new here although I've been into fossils since I was a youngster!

 

I managed to grab the following example on the south coast of Kent in the UK which is known for fossilised wood and footprints and bones etc.

I thought it might be a fossilised tree limb or small trunk.

What do you think? Any guidance very gratefully received!

 

Thanks so much

Welcome to TFF!

Does not look like a fossil, wood or bone. I think it is a concretion.

Ah thanks!

It's quite a sculptural thing so even if it's not wood it looks good standing up. Might give it a polish to finish it off!
