The fossil-bearing rocks of the British Isles represent life from the last 2,900 million years and the UK is seen by many as the cradle of modern geology. Using the geological map of Britain, expert palaeontologist Peter Doyle offers a comprehensive guide to fossils in the UK, plotting the main fossil groups around the country, and relating them to the different ages of the rock in which they are found. With photographs of the fossils that can be discovered, and tips on how to find them yourself, "British Fossils" is the perfect companion for the novice fossil hunter or enthusiast.
Peter Doyle is a geologist with a life-long interest in military history. A specialist studying the role that terrain has had to play in two centuries of warfare, his interests nevertheless extend beyond the scientific. He has written extensively on the British experience of warfare in the two world wars - illustrated with artefacts of those wars. He believes that objects have a tale to tell; he has tried to translate that for the general public.
