Kimmeridge Things to Do: 25 reviews and 43 photos
I was excited to try fossil hunting for the first time in my life! Our guide told us what to do, but when I started, I soon developed an own technique which seemed to be more obvious to me. Some stones were made up of different layers, and I just cracked those up - and often found a small treasure inside! Altogether I found eight fossils! Wow, I was really happy - I had not expected this and would even have been happy with just one!
We were twelve in our group, and while one girl found two fossils, the others did not find anything. I am not sure if I had just found a lucky spot (I found all eight very close together), or if they had just not been looking properly (maybe they were not really interested, or were searching for very big ones, thus overlooking the small bits).
I gave two of the fossils to my dad as a souvenir, I think it is a nice present to bring back home.
Unfortunately I am not knowledgeable about fossils, so I cannot tell you how old these are, or what they once were. If you know more and can tell me, please don't hesitate to do so :-)
