FOSSIL MOLLUSCS

FROM THE ST. ERTH BEDS
  
4 million years old
  
St. Erth, Cornwall

  

The long-abandoned sand and clay pits at St Erth in Cornwall have attracted considerable scientific interest and controversy for over a century.  

  

It is a famous site for its sequence of Late Pliocene marine sediments, which contain an exceptionally diverse assemblage of fossils. It also provides evidence relating to the evolution of S.W. England, former sea-levels and past environments. Part of the sequence is thought to have been deposited at the same time as the well-known Coralline Crag of Suffolk. ​​​​​​
  

These tiny fossils are from an old collection and may have been collected in the 1960s. They are presented in a glass-topped display box.
