Eggs or fossils

During the Easter holidays I spent a fun few days on Dorset's beautiful Jurassic Coast with my family.

Along with the standard hunt for chocolate eggs, we spent hours with bent backs and buckets, scouring the shoreline for the imprints of ancient creatures.

With crisps and cider fuelling us, the parents at least, we eventually struck gold and found a stack of ammonite-type fossils in the crumbling clay hills nearby. Amazing!
