Fossil Hunting

Fossil Hunting Hengistbury Head There are many places along the Jurassic Coast to search for fossils. Hengistbury Head is a great place to visit for fossil hunting and is also of archaeological importance with evidence of the headland being used during the Stone Age, Bronze Age and Iron age. Every year over a million people visit the site which is home to a range of animals and plant life and is a special area of conservation. It is a great place to find microfossil seeds which can be viewed under a microscope at home, but they must be kept in airtight containers to stop them from crumbling after being exposed to the air. Swanage Fossil hunting in Swanage can be more challenging but with a bit of work and looking in the right place you may find ostracods, bivalves, gastropods, ammonites, starfish and brachiopods. Most fossils can be found within boulders. The chalk and greensand boulders will increase the chance of finding fossils but you will require a hammer, chisel and safety goggles to access them. Lulworth Cove Lulworth Cove is a very popular tourist location and has a fossil forest that can be seen at low tide. Fossils are less common at this site for collecting but can be found in the loose material around the Cove. Seatown Seatown is home to many ammonites that can be picked up from the shore, making this a great place for adults and children to find fossils on the beach. The second most common find are belemnites, marine animals that lived during the Jurassic and Cretaceous periods. Their closest living relatives are squid and cuttlefish. Microfossils, reptile remains and brachiopods can also all be found. 80 The Poole Harbour and Marina Guide 2018
