360° fossil-hunting adventure
Join a fossil hunt on the Jurassic Coast in Dorset. As you explore a stretch of beach between Charmouth and Lyme Regis, get tips on what fossils to look out for.
Britain's rocks hold a fascinating record of the country's prehistoric past, ready for you to unearth. It's a fun challenge to search for fossils and identify what and how old they are.
In the 360° video above, Alison Ferris, a warden at Charmouth Heritage Coast Centre, takes a group of students fossil collecting on the beach by Black Ven cliff, where there are lots of treasures to find from the Jurassic Period. Mary Anning found many of her amazing fossils of marine creatures here.
