More from the fossil hunter

My son sends us further photos of his discoveries, following on from this earlier one, and a couple of fine views of the location and himself. He has had a good trip to England's "Jurassic Coast". He says the third photo is at "Maiden Castle, largest iron age hill fort in Europe"

Love the fossils - and the views. Thank you both.

They are gorgeous photographs of an area I recall with great fondness. Years ago I read a book about the young woman of the 19th century who was the first to begin cataloguing the fossils. If I remember correctly, she'd wanted to be an archeologist but wasn't allowed to travel.

I particularly like the top photo, we had one of those sitting on our shelf for a number of years (in my youth). I am not sure what happened to the fossil...

Ah, the second photograph.
