COLLECTION OF OVER 60 SMALL BRACHIOPODS FROM THE WENLOCK LIMESTONE

420 million years old (Silurian period)

Wenlock Edge, Much Wenlock, Shropshire​​​​

The Wenlock Limestone is the remains of a tropical reef that was formed in a warm, shallow sea. The limestone has beautifully preserved the many different animals that were living on and around the reef at the time, including brachiopods. The Wenlock Limestone was one of the first fossil communities in the world to be discovered and studied.

Brachiopods are marine animals that look like small clams, but they have a different anatomy and are not closely related to clams or any other molluscs. They lived on the sea floor and were much more abundant during the Palaeozoic and Mesozoic eras than they are today.  

These fossils are from an old collection, collected in 1987. Presented in a clear plastic box with a hinged lid.
