About this book

This guide is intended to provide a concise and inexpensive source of reference for those wishing to know which fossils from this period they may expect to find in Britain, and to help them identify the fossils they have collected.

Following a brief introduction to the subject, simple stratigraphical tables show the classification of British Caenozoic rock formations. There is a comprehensive listing of the geological distribution of each species featured, which can be cross-referenced with the appropriate illustration, and a brief explanation of the scientific names of fossils.

The book's identification guide includes 44 plates of accurate black-and-white line drawings and features 354 invertebrate, vertebrate and plant fossil species. Each of the species is illustrated with at least one drawing, which is accompanied by details of where in Britain it can be found.

With a geological time-scale and a map of the location of key fossil locations, this guide will help both amateur and professional palaeontologists identify everything from a bivalve to a brachiopod.
