About this book

The coastline of Dorset is spectacular and beautiful. It exposes a long sequence of Jurassic age sedimentary rocks which, with its wealth of invertebrate, vertebrate and plant fossils, has long attracted palaeontologists - amateur, professional, interested holiday-maker, dedicated collector - and its international importance has been recognised by the designation as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. From the pioneering work of early collectors like Mary Anning onwards, the area has been a cradle of palaeontology. The Lower Lias is particularly fossiliferous and this lavishly illustrated Guide covers all the fossil groups to be found by the collector in the field.
