    Christmas in Yorkshire

    Me and my family spent the Christmas week up in Yorkshire. They planned to do boring Christmas stuff and I would occupy myself by going fossil hunting or fishing. Whitby itself was gorgeous, with old buildings and plenty to do, as well as lots of fudge shops and freshly smoked kippers... The tides weren’t the best that week with high being around midday and small tides meaning fossil hunting time was limited most days. The closest beach - Sandsend was a five minute drive away. Tried here a couple of times and was rewarded with a few Dactylioceras and a nice Hildoceras which I’m hoping still ha
  2. Here is an ammonite which I found at Port Mulgrave on the Yorkshire Coast in 2017. This is Jurassic aged. My ammonite knowledge is not great, but I think this is Dactylioceras commune. These are very abundant on the Yorkshire coast, so I don’t expect anything uncommon for this. Anything is of interest, especially things which are abundant in your collecting area but not often seen for sale online in the UK, for example Mazon creek Jellyfish. I mainly collect Carboniferous fossils, but I will consider fossils of all ages. Thanks, Daniel
  3. I am lucky enough to have permission to collect fossils at an old coal mining tip in West Yorkshire, UK. The site is now a woods, but pieces of shale can be found, containing upper Carboniferous fish fossils including sharks and Rhizodonts. At this time of year, collecting is difficult due to the leafs which cover the shale. The vast majority of the shale comes from a mussel band, which as the name suggests, contains abundant bivalves, but generally the fish remains are very small. The exceptions to this are blocks of the mussel band which contain orange coloured bivalves. These blocks se

    Humanite or bone maybe?

    Ello' all! I found this funky thing and originally thought it might be a peice of pot or some humanite of some kind. But on getting it home and drying it out, it feels too dense for that. It's been pretty heavily sea polished, but the ridge on it looks unusual to me. And the entire peice has a slight curvature which seems odd for a natural formation. It comes from ice age clay, so the context is dubious. What are your expert thoughts? Thank you!
  5. A video I made showing some of my finds from Summer. Hopefully you enjoy. Collected near Whitby.
  6. Here is a large crocodile block which I would like to trade in return for an upper Carboniferous British fossil. I found it at Mappleton, which is part of the Holderness coast, UK. This is by quite some distance the best crocodile fossil I have seen from the Holderness coast, and one of the best I have seen from any part of Yorkshire. I collect mainly Carboniferous fossils, and therefore although it is one of the rarest fossils I have in my collection, I have decided I would like to trade it for something Carboniferous. 22 large bones/skutes are visible on the sides, with a few smaller one

    Fossil or Rock?

    Is this a fossil or just a rock embedded in shale? Found it on the beach in Runswick Bay, North Yorkshire. Any help would be much appreciated!

    Wood? Bone? Fossil walkie talkie?

    Hello there all! I picked this oddity up last weekend. Since then I've been staring at it and... well... I can't make head nor tails of it. Seems to be soooomething? Found on the Yorkshire coast, along ice age clay cliffs

    Coral with odd-boy?

    Hello again! I found this lovely lump of coral today, but it seems to have a bonus weird-boy sticking out of it! Firstly, any idea what kind of coral this is? Rugosa? But then - any idea what the bonus weird thing is? Haha Thank you very much! I'm learning so much from y'all!

    Carboniferous millipede?

    I found this in a coal mining tip in South Yorkshire (UK). It is upper Carboniferous aged. Can anyone identify it please? The only possibility I can think of is millipede. It measures around 1 inch. Thanks, Daniel
  13. I recently found a rather large Dactylioceras ammonite from Saltwick Bay in Yorkshire UK. If measures around 4.2 inches which is pretty big for the species, although iv seen bigger. It was a reasonably easy prep and the matrix pulled away like it was nothing. Unfortunately there’s a small section missing from the outer whorl, either predation, or compression from fossilisation caused this. Still a lovely specimen. I’ll be posting plenty more soon, Iv been concentrating on building an online store and constantly prepping over the past few months so hardly find the time along with work. Th
  14. The species Hildoceras are a relatively common ammonite along the Yorkshire coast, they were my favourite when I first started collecting, and can range from all sorts of sizes. I have ones that are less than an inch, to 6 inches, though there are people who have found 9 inch monsters. Usually, they’re found solitary in rounded nodules and that’s about it, so last year when I found a nodule that looked like a double I was thrilled! As per, the block was covered in horrible pyrite, making prep a pain in the butt. I finally finished it recently and it’s a beauty. Some really odd colours amongst
  15. Tonight, I started a block that iv had for quite some time, and being dying to prep. Annoyingly, the split from the nodule was very poor, cause a few different cracks, all the way through the ammonite. I glued this back up two days ago and let it set before starting prep. I couldn’t wait to get home from work today, so I could begin the real work. Prep photos to follow in the comments as I can’t size down these files any more

    Whitby Area finds

    Had a couple of hours on a beach in the Whitby area today but tides weren’t favourable. Along with a load of the usual Belemnites, Ammonites and Bivalves I also found these and was wondering A) is the item in pictures 1 & 2 a piece of amber that has been roughed up by the sea? I have heard of people ffinding amber here but am yet to see any. B ) What is the item in the third picture? thanks

    Top of a long bone?

    Hello again! I also found this yesterday It was weathering out of the ice age clay along the Yorkshire coast. Definitely rock and as I've cleaned the clay off it's resembling bone - but I'm a totes newbie, so it could well be a geologic quirk! What are your thoughts? Once again! Thank you for the advice! This forum is awesome.

    Ooo... is dis bone?!

    Hello - l just found this amongst the loose rocks on the beach. It's a small village on the coast of Yorkshire. And isn't accessible except by scaling the cliff or walking a few miles along the beach. The cliffs here are made of clay deposited during the last ice age clay - so they're a real mix of rock types. This block was pre broken. I saw some light shapes on the reverse and found these when I flipped it over. I want to believe these are vertebrae so bad! But I turn to the immense collective knowledge of the fossil forum What hav
  20. Thought this would be an interesting one for anybody overseas, who has never heard of Yorkshire’s Golden Cannonballs. Theyre only found in the UK along the Yorkshire coastline. With a 1/15 chance of having something inside, it’s safe to say they can be quite rare, and are always sought after. More often than not, they either contain one, or multiples of Eleganticeras ammonites inside. I’ll never tire of finding them. Theyre found in the shake jet rocks, and take hours to polish up the iron pyrite to give them their golden glow of you like. Here’s one I recently prepared.
  21. Found today on the English Yorkshire Coast ( Runswick bay). At first i thought it was maybe layers of a type of fossilised plant but I cant find anything to match the markings on this. Completely baffled by it. Looks very cool though. ID help, please?
  22. Had a walk from Runswick Bay to Kettleness and back yesterday, found some nice ammonites, a few belemnites, bivalves etc. Not sure what this is, if anything. Is anyone able to identify it from the pictures? For those unfamiliar with the area it’s close to Whitby, an area known for Jurassic marine fossils
