Fossil hunters

Recommended Posts

I'm gaining an interest in fossils as there's so many marine species in the limestone around here. Anybody else into it or can recommend a starting point for exploration from southern Deux-Sèvres? The amber quarries in northern Charente and the cliffs at La Pointe du Chay near La Rochelle are beckoning for a day out.

And no, no jokes about living with old fossils! LOL.

There is a fossil hunterman with a shop in Brantome he is an interesting man and speaks English when he feels like it. He found the most complete sabre tooth tiger skull and has it by the till in his shop.

There is loads of stuff in there 34 million year old insects - you name it.
