FOSSIL FISH   

395 million years old

Hill of Cruaday, Orkney Isles, Scotland
 
During the Devonian period Britain lay just south of the equator and the climate was hot and arid.  A freshwater lake existed where Orkney now lies which contained large numbers of fish that have been preserved in beautiful detail.   

This fossil is from the ‘Sandwick Fish Bed’ – part of the Old Red Sandstone.
