    Unknown fossil(?) from Port Mulgrave

    Hi all, I picked up this conical object (I'm currently reluctant to even commit to 'fossil') from the shore at Port Mulgrave, North Yorkshire. It was loose on the shore so unfortunately no certain stratigraphy either. I'd be happy with any thoughts or ideas of what it could be. Thank you all so much in advance, MarineBio
  2. So this is the first prep I've attempted with my new Dremel (with specialised tips for fossils/rocks). The ammonite is from Saltwick Bay in Yorkshire. I chose this as my first practice piece as I thought that it was going to be pretty bashed up inside so would be a good one to say 'oh well' if/when I make mistakes. Sadly I now think it could have been quite nice had I saved it for when I have more experience! Anyway, to my inexperienced touch the matrix felt very sticky, with practically none of the matrix popping off nicely. I felt like I was having to carve out the ammonite and t

    Yorkshire Bone(s?)

    Hello, I found these pieces a few weeks ago at Saltwick Bay in Yorkshire. The first one is obviously bone and I assume its ichthyosaur, but bone isn't really my forte so I hope that someone else may be able to confirm this or provide an ID. It also has a kind of stone cap on the flat end, anyone got ideas on how to remove that? The second piece I'm not too sure about. The shape is suggestive to me and there are bits that seem somewhat bony in texture, but as I said, I'm not sure. Thanks

    hollow ribs? pterosaur?

    Hi there, I’d like to get the expert opinion of you all. Could these be pterosaur ribs? i just know they’re from Whitney, Yorkshire. As you can see, they’re hollow, and all I know of, that would have little hollow ribs like that are pterosaurs, and avian dinosaurs, but I'd imagine it was very uncommon for articulated ribs from a raptor to make it to, and “survive” an aquatic deposit, intact and untouched, although I know pterosaur bones are sometimes found in aquatic fossil deposits, at least from coastal areas. I'm not sure what else would be found there with hollow ribs, and these also seem

    Yorkshire Ammonite ID

    Hi guys, I’ve done a bit of prepping of this ammonite I found in Salwick Bay, Yorkshire a few weeks ago and have no idea what it is. There are two obvious tubercles and there may have been more but as you can see it isn’t in great shape..

    Yorkshire Ammonite ID

    Hi I visited the Yorkshire coast and found several different ammonites, doe anyone here have an ID for them?
  9. Last year when things weren’t so complicated with COVID, we managed to have hunt for dinosaur footprints on the Yorkshire coast. Here’s the beach looking across to Scarborough in the distance. Here are some examples of the prints we came across: Nothing fantastic but all theropods. Heres one in a block that was carry-able: I finally got around to cutting the block to size today although it was freezing outside. So here you go, Theropod Footprint, circa 5 inches long. Middle Jur
  10. Found near Whitby, Yorkshire in early Jurassic rock. Could just be a Gryphaea but I thought the curve looked a bit suspicious, like it was a more elongated structure, so figured it was worth checking. Thanks in advance.

    Ichthyosaur bone block

    After a few months of many acid baths and manual prep, I finished this quality piece off this afternoon. Most likely heavily predated by another marine reptile. There’s verts, neural arches, ribs, teeth and jaw. Probably around 30 hours of prep in total. Finally have an abrasion unit on its way so all that’s left is to finish the matrix. This is my first foray into proper bone prep, only really doing smaller pieces before, and needed a challenge during this lockdown I’m the uk. Pretty happy with how it’s come out.
  12. An absolute monster of a jaw section I recently prepped from the Yorkshire coast. Only a partial so shows how big it would have been. This is actually part of another block I’m currently working on, containing another section of jaw along with a tonne of other bone from the beast. There’s also a neural arch from a vertebrae sat in there too. The bigger block is not far off finished so I will post that once acid treatment is finished. Thanks for looking
  13. Hi guys. It's been a while as always when it comes to posting on here. Plenty of reason, too long to go into. I hope everybody is doing as well as they can be during this pandemic. Now onto the good stuff. A while back, I posted my phylloceras in a sorry state of affairs, sections missing everywhere, cracks everywhere. Basically it didn't look fantastic. You'll be able to find it somewhere on here from previous posts. Well, lockdown happened here in the uk, which means there was only one thing to do during this time, and that was to get to work in the workshop and finish a lot of stuff.
  14. Here's a recent fossil hunt that I recorded, feel free to watch it if you're interested. There is an added bonus of a sunrise too
  15. Here is an early morning fossil hunt. I always prefer the early mornings because often I get the beach to myself. Hopefully you enjoy if you want to watch

    Carboniferous millipede

    I found this in the South Yorkshire coalfield (UK) recently (upper Carboniferous). I'm 99% sure its a millipede section but would like some second opinions. I suspect this can't be identified to a genus level but if anyone can narrow down the possibilities that would be great, if it is indeed a millipede. Sorry for the lack of a scale, the camera wouldn't focus on the fossil when there was a ruler. It measures 1cm wide. Thanks, Daniel
  17. Here is a video i just uploaded of some of my very recent finds from the Yorkshire Coast. These finds are all unprepared currently and in the video showed as found. They will be completed very soon and should come out lovely The best finds are the articulated string of verts, and very nice looking section of Ichthyosaur Paddle. Hopefully you enjoy.
  18. I've been looking at my specimens of Acrocoelites trisulculosus from the Toarcian Jet Rock (Mulgrave Shale Member = Falciferum Zone) of the north Yorkshire coast. This is an anoxic mudstone deposited during a prominent worldwide Ocean Anoxic Event (OAE) and, as might be expected, the preservation is very good. A number of them (7 so far) have a thin pyrite layer around the apex. This shows obvious lineation in all of them, mostly oblique to the axis of the rostrum. As pyrite is often associated with soft tissue decay, I strongly suspect that this is preserving musc

    Mystery Yorkshire Fish

    Hello Everyone, I found this eroded partial nodule while on a fossil hunt at Runswick Bay last year. I think it contains part of a fish but I'm not sure of the type. I've had a look at some other Yorkshire fish material, primarily Gyrosteus, but haven't seen anything like it yet. Most of the Gyrosteus material seems to be much bigger then whats in this block. I was wondering if anyone could help me identify what it is, I think I have sections of fin as well as possibly a cluster of ribs eroding out of the block. I've also included an annotated image of the

    Insect wing or Cyclopteris?

    I found this fossil today when splitting upper Carboniferous nodules I found earlier this year in West Yorkshire, UK. I can’t decide whether this is a Cyclopteris leaf or an insect wing. I think Cyclopteris leaf is more likely but I’m not sure. It measures 2.5cm long. Does anyone know what this is? Thanks, Daniel

    Finding Fossils

    Hey all, Since i'm stuck in lockdown i decided to post a video of some of my finds from the start of the year. Hopefully you enjoy it, there's some interesting finds along the way
  22. I found this plant a few months ago in South Yorkshire, UK. It is from the Pennine Middle Coal Measures formation. Preserved on the plant is an unidentified object which I suspect may be a seed. It seems that the positive side of the object is preserved on the half of the rock with the negative part of the plant. Any help to identify the object would be much appreciated. Thanks, Daniel
  23. This was on a larger block with burrows and I have chiseled it down. I found this on the Yorkshire Coast near Whitby in the sandstone beds where you can find trace fossils including dinosaur footprints. I’ve been told it’s a dinosaur footprint by some people and others burrow marks. Wondered what your thoughts were. thanks

    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
  25. 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
