    1 hour in ditch, no tools, 300 metres from home & voila - this lot
    credit mainly goes to Mrs. S as I was in the ditch, soaking up the sun 8) whilst she was burrowing furiously in the clay.

    1 complete Harpoceras falciferum
    1 Hildoceras bifrons
    loads of Orthildaites douvillei bits
    stack of fragged belemnites
    2 other ammonite fragments
    1 scallopy bivalve
    & a mystery object I'll post separately

    still no marine reptile ! :x

    Wow!

    That's great Spartacus. How about a picture or two (or an oil painting if you are so inclined) of the site, even if it is an exposed lump of clay in your backgarden? It is always nice to see a context.

    Top stuff, wonder what your 'mystery item' is?

    Phil

    Spartacus,

    Do you still have the picture of the fossils?

    Or maybe some of the new giants youve found? 8-)
