LARGE FOSSILISED BONE
OF A WHALE
 
About 10 million years old
 
Red Crag (derived from Miocene rocks)
 
Bawdsey Beach, Suffolk

 
During the Miocene period East Anglia was under the sea and bones of whales were buried in the sand on the sea floor. Millions of years later, during the Pliocene period, these bones were exhumed by erosion and reburied by sand called the Red Crag. 
  
This large and rare piece of fossilised whale bone was found beneath the cliffs at Bawdsey.  It is naturally polished, it has not been treated in any way.
 
This fossil was collected in 1987 and is from an old collection.
