FOSSILISED WOOD FROM ESSEX

300 million years old

Colchester, Essex


A small piece of fossilised wood, completely turned to quartz, from the gravels of central Essex that were laid down by the Thames during the Ice Age. One end has been cut and polished.

It is thought to be from Dadoxylon, a giant extinct coniferous tree whose fossils are found in rocks of late Carboniferous/early Permian age near Coventry. The wood was brought to Essex by the Thames during the early Ice Age when it was a much larger river with headwaters in North Wales.
