Hi everyone
Was just wondering if anyone knows any specific locations in Finland where fossils can be found , I am heading out there in summer and thought I could have a look while I’m there. I heard about some very early deposits at lake Näsijärvi and was wondering if anyone had anymore information
Thanks joe

One of the fossil locations in Finland is called Aland and it is between Sweden and Finland in the Baltic Sea. You can find fossils from the Ordovician Period and you can see some examples of fossils for yourself in the University Museum in Helsinki. Examples of fossils you could find in the Aland Islands would be Trilobites, brachiopods and gastropods. You can look up other fossil locations as well on the internet as I am sure there are many more. I hope this helps.
