FOSSILISED BONE OF WHALE - about 10 million years old - Bawdsey, Suffolk

FOSSILISED BONE OF WHALE
Part of a whale rib
 
About 10 million years old
 
Bawdsey Beach, Suffolk
 
During the Miocene period East Anglia was submerged beneath a shallow sea and bones of whales were buried in sand on the sea floor. Millions of years later, during the Pliocene period, these bones were exhumed by erosion and reburied in a sandy deposit called the Red Crag. 

Along the coast of Suffolk and Essex there are cliffs consisting of Red Crag and these fossilised bones are often washed out of the cliffs onto the local beaches.

They were rounded by natural abrasion on the sea floor millions of years ago before they were buried by the Red Crag sand.
