This informative and attractive folded poster has been produced by the Essex Rock and Mineral Society to help identify fossils that may be found in Essex and some adjoining counties, concentrating on the Chalk, London Clay, Red Crag and Ice Age deposits. It accompanies the other two posters: Pebbles in Essex and Essex Rocks.
The poster explains what fossils are, how they form, and how they are used for dating rocks. A section on Walton-on-the-Naze – Essex's most famous geological site – has line drawings of the most common fossils to be found in the Red Crag.
Illustrated throughout with diagrams, maps and colour photographs. Ideal for the beginner.
