Hello all,
I'm extremely new to this world and have been "hunting" with my daughter last year on holiday in Wales. Thing is, I need assistance with identification. What is it I've actually found? Are they actually fossils? Any help or advice is appreciated.

Pic 3 looks like modern gastropod grazing trails. The rest look like fossiliferous limestone pebbles. Broken bits of shell, crinoid and coral. They look suspiciously Carboniferous, it would help a lot if you mentioned whereabouts in Wales you found them.

Thanks for looking Pete.
Pic 1 is from "Herberts Quarry" in the Brecon Beacons. Near Llangadog.
The others are from Pembrokshire. Manobier beach and Freshwater West.
Hope this helps.

Hi Phil,
Yes that would make them either Devonian or Carboniferous. I would suggest the grey rocks are fossiliferous Carboniferous limestone and the red one is Devonian Old Red Sandstone with grazing tracks.

Pete.
