Welcome to ďThe Fossil GalleryĒ, fossils from the North Yorkshire Coast.
Iím an amateur collector who enjoys getting out on the North Yorkshire Coast as often as I can. The majority of the fossils contained in the Gallery pages Iíve found myself and are from the Lower Jurassic, some 200 to 180 Million Years Ago (MYA). None of them are museum pieces, but to me they are all special.
Feel free to browse around this site. If you have comments or a question about a particular fossil, click on the contact button. Iím NOT a palaeontologist or even an expert in the field, just a keen fossil hunter
Thanks for visiting and I hope you find the site interesting.
NOTE: None of the fossils on this site are for sale, just a selection from my collection.
