About this book

Fossil mammals and birds have been found at many hundreds of localities in Britain, and there is a long history of collection and study, dating back to the earliest days of palaeontology. Many British specimens have been pivotal in major developments in the history of the sciences of palaeontology, comparative anatomy and evolution. British fossil mammal sites range through virtually the entire record of the group, from late Triassic (210 million years ago) to the present day.
This volume of the GCR Series contains a description of around 30 representative sites, selected for the GCR for the Mesozoic-Tertiary part of the history of these vertebrates. The volume is a companion to the 'Pleistocene Mammals' GCR volume.
The geology of each site is described along with the fauna, an interpretation and a comparison with other sites.

This book is invaluable as an essential reference book to those engaged in the study of these fossils, and provides a stimulus for further investigation.
