HI..following a first chalk hunt today, we found some fossils that we can't find to.identify, I thought one was a shark tooth but im.not so sure, and we found what appeared to be a bone, but May be something else. I believe the round one is an urchin, ...but any help.would be appreciated.. .thank you...

In the last picture, the top one is a sea urchin, and bottom right is a brachiopod. I have no idea of what the rest could be
You can have a look at: http://www.chalk.discoveringfossils.co.uk/ for reference on the sea urchin

Hello Bracken, from left to right - top line the first 4 look like Marcasite nodules but the 5th I can't decipher anything from one out if focus photo I'm afraid - could you take more of this from different angles including the cross section at the widest end.
In the bottom photo at the top, yes it's a sea urchin but need photos of the underside, side profile and profile of the wide end to hopefully give you a genus / species. Underneath that, as I said earlier, I need better photos . The next one I'm pretty certain is just a flint and the last one is a Rhynchonellid brachiopod but would again need good photos of different aspects of it to give you a genus / species.
Please ALWAYS give an exact location and include a scale (a ruler is best)
