    Re: fossil i.d please

    It is often difficult to put a date of fossils from this location as they are not actually from the beds that they are found in as they were transported there via glaciers from the north during the last ice age, so your finds could be Jurassic or Cretaceous as most of Yorkshire or something else entirely. Sorry I couldn’t be more helpful. Maybe have a look in some local fossil collecting guides of the area?

        Hello Sarah

        An image of some echinoids (sea urchins) from my collection, they probably all come from the Flamborough chalk but were all found as erratics on the Holderness.

        I have some fossil sponges that are interesting from the same area and also found as erratics.

        A couple more sea urchins.
