Fossil Hunting in Britain

Last week was quite busy at uni, we hosted a conference for palaeontology students on Friday and on Saturday we went fossil hunting at Aust Cliff and Manor Farm in Southwest England. There were great finds (I will post pictures soon), ranging from microscopic teeth and scales to dorsal fish spines and bones of Pachystropheus, a crocodile like animal that wandered the cliffs about 200 million years ago.

We also made an episode of Fossil Field Guides, created by Paul Williams. Fossil Field Guides are podcast guides to the best field locations in Britain. I will post a link to the Aust Cliff podcast when production is complete, in the meantime, check out Paul’s other Fossil Field Guides.
