 Hi Charlie,

You should persuade your nan to get a really deep ploughing done- sure to dredge up some good stuff. Has she considered entering the agricultural lime business?- small chalk pit/ quarry perhaps

Hi, 
These are the better finds from my nan's field.
P1010289b.jpg Sponge like the one I found a week or so ago.
P1010290b.jpg Is there something in this little flint nodule?
P1010292b.jpg Few chalk shell fragments in chalk
P1010293b.jpg Is this a tooth of somekind, or just bone. What is it off of?
P1010294b.jpg Back view
P1010295b.jpg Front view
Any ideas?

Thanks,
Charlie.

Let their be fossils!

Is it old or recent? Only I found one like this in the Isle of Wight and it was 10 000 years old (ice age).

Hi Fossil Fanatic,

Are these finds are from a ploughed field? Do you find bits of chalk as well as flint on the surface? Any echinoids?

Cheers,

H

Yeah these come from ploughed fields, and there is lots and lots of chalk, with only some chalk fossils. There is flint as well, and I do get Echinoids. I get Belemnites, Bivalves, Brachiopods, Echinoids, Gryphea, Occasional Gastropods, you get the idea. 

Thanks,
Charlie.

Yeah I should lol, would be a good little business! These are all glacial deposits, and for some reason I find certain things in certain fields etc. When they start growing the crops it is rather annoying! 

Thanks,
Charlie.
