That picture may mean little to you but to me it means one thing! FOSSILS and Shropshire is the fossil capital of the World. It is the best place for a few days banging the rocks!
Some of my finds.
This bit of rock is over 12 inches wide so it never came home with me. It has a really nice impression of a worm (Serpulites Longissimus) stamped on it. I managed to get a shorter bit for my collection.
That might be a wee bit boring..."Who cares about worms!" I hear you shout. So...
Lets hear it for the Graptolites.... "Graptolites... Graptolites Ra ra ra"
A sexy little beast isn't it! Well I've done my best for Graptolite promotion... they are really interesting, really!
I suppose you want something more interesting.... OK here's a trilobite!
And another... yawn...
And just for some variation, a brachiopod!
And some funky molluscs!
