This photoguide includes examples of all the major groups of fossils that can be found in the UK, with details of their distinguishing marks, how old they are and where they are most likely to be found. The book is illustrated with a collection of colour photographs taken from the Bavarian State Collection for Paleontology in Munich. It also covers the basic processes of fossilization and the biology of the major groups so that the function behind the structures that are seen in fossils can be better understood, as well as a short guide to how to collect and preserve fossil material.
