Hi Becky - you have some really nice finds. I particularly like the echinoid, a beautiful example and quite a rare find on the Holderness coast. I agree with Colin for the first 5 identifications - are 3 and 4 the same specimen? I think 6, 7 and 8 are conglomerate/ breccia, not fossil. Not sure on the last one, but it may be bone. __________________ Roy D.

Hi both thanks very much for your replys it is great to see I have have found some interesting things. 3 and 4 are actually 2 different specimens one seems to be in flint with a chalk outer coating but the larger of the 2 I have to say I was really chuffed to find. As for the others some look great in the flesh it is interesting about the last 2 as I really can't make my mind up about them although I do think the last one may be bone it just feels right in the hand as for the other one I can't make my mind up but even if it isn't a fossil can't complain thanks again for your input both
