    Stabilising Dinosaur Footprint

    Hello everyone, I have a question regarding stabilising sandstone to keep it from crumbling. Last year I found and extracted a dinosaur footprint from a block on the beach at Whitby, Yorkshire UK. The footprint is of an Aalenian age therapod from approximately 170 million years ago. The print itself measures 20cm from the base to the tip of the centre claw mark. I am hoping to get the block it is in cut down into a slab in order to frame it but now that it is dry the sandstone is very loose and crumbly. I am looking for something that will add strength to the stone and prevent crumbl

    I recently recieved a very interesting block with two ammonites of the same species to prepare on commission which I would like to show you here. They lay about 10 cm. apart one over the other, so either they were imbedded at different times or else they reached their final positions through turbulence. Staufenia staufensis is the species, one having a diameter of 18cm. and the other one of 16. They come from the Middle Jurassic bradfordensis zone of the Late Aalenian. I'll show you the progression of the preparation using 4 blocks of 4 photos each showing different perspectives of the bl

  8. I mentioned in another post a few days ago that I had discovered a site in the Middle Jurassic Aalenian which I hadn't visited previously. I found it rather unexpectedly while in search of the humphriesi oolite formation. It was obvious that other collectors had worked here in the past, but the rock had also been weathering away for a few years since the last ones were here, so I figured it would be worth spending the good part of a day inspecting it. I set off to this avail this very morning. It's a bit of a way up to get there, but not too strenuous if you take your time. By the way, I remem

  10. This past Sunday, I decided to pay my friend a visit at his workplace in the Wutach valley which I reported on recently. I left home a few hours earlier than he did since I wanted to visit a site on the way which another friend had told me about. This was off of a steep path through the woods which I had never taken before, so I was looking forward to excercising my calves and thighs. The way took me a kilometer or so uphill until I reached what appeared to be the pinnacle, which was where the exposure in the humphriesianum zone was supposed to be which I had been looking for. Up to that point

    My namesake

    I took another trip to the Wutach yesterday and dug up the Aalenian a bit. Didn't find all that much this time around, but I was happy to have found another Ludwigia haugi in the murchisonae zone which went straight into the display case after prep.

  24. I made another visit to that site in the Middle Jurassic Aalenian to continue on where I'd left off last week. Here's the original report . I headed back up to the exposure with the intent of continuing along removing more of the weathered blocks from the bank. But first of all, I noticed a possibility to remove a bit more overburden from my dig last week. Like I'd mentioned before, this overburden belongs to the so-called staufensis bank and there's always a chance of finding something in it, although they are few and far between and not always complete. But waddayaknow! I uncovered a Staufen
