Yup! Looks like a Dalmanites trilobite, I'm sure someone else could be more specific. The part you have there is the Pygidium (the rear end section) of the trilobite

Looks like Dalmanites sp., yes (probably D. myops) - Silurian (Wenlock).

Manuel - you found a grave full of brachiopods?

The first pic brachs look like Sphaerirhynchia wilsoni and the second set of images look like a Gypidula galeata, both typical Wenlock species.
