Hi

I'm new to fossil collecting and am looking for recommendations for books to help with ID and understanding where to look for fossils. I'd mostly be collecting in Scotland but would hope to get yo the Jurassic Coast in the summer so any books around these topics would be most appreciated.

I'm just starting out so the books need to be fairly easy to understand!

Thanks for your help

Hi Alison,

Natural History Museums British Fossils (Palaeozoic, Mesozoic, Cenozoic) are a good aid to Identifying your finds. Check out Amazon for British Regional Geology guides (BGS) relevant to your area of interest, which will give you an idea where to look.

Hi 
Agree with Pete's choice of books. You might also look at the BGS maps portal online where you can view geological maps for all areas - for free! These are obviously very useful when you have decided on a type of rock to explore. Good luck.
