The coastline of Dorset is spectacular and beautiful. It exposes a long squence 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.

This book is fantastic for covering the enormous diversity of the Lower Lias, covering not only the ammonites and marine reptiles that you expect, but also microfossils, tracefossils, plants, brachiopods, gastropods, belemnites, insects and other arthropods, echinoderms, sharks, rays, bony fishes, reptiles and coprolites. Exceptionally useful for identification and further understanding the Geology of the Lyme Regis Charmouth stretch of the coast.
