Working in a museum there is the opportunity for involvement in some interesting projects.
Here are a few images taken during the lifting of a fossil Plesiosaur 188 million years old from the North Somerset coast
|First thing is to find it !. We new the general area but the loose sand left by the tide made this difficult||Complete specimen quite clearly seen once the loose sand is washed away|
|The best looking guy on the team earning his pay with a 10inch stone saw||Blocks ready for lifting|
