FOSSILISED WOOD

50 million years old

London Clay.
Bawdsey Shingle Spit, Suffolk

A lovely piece of water-worn fossilised wood from the London Clay. It has a nice silky lustre with the tree rings visible. Presented in a lidded gift box.

During the Eocene period, South-East England was submerged beneath a warm sea and the coastline was subtropical rainforest dominated by palms and mangroves.  Logs of rainforest timber floated out to sea from the coast eventually to become saturated and sink, and be preserved in the mud on the sea floor. This mud became the London Clay which underlies London, Essex and parts of Kent and Suffolk.
