What to Expect

Are your curious about Fossil Preparation?  Fossils are generally found partly encased in sedimentary rock. Rarely are fossils found entirely free from the rock. Because of this, fossils must be prepared to reveal their full scientific information or to make them look attractive for displays.

Fossil preparators use a range of methods to extract or expose fossils from their rock matrix. These fossils have been excavated from the Jurassic Coast, some of the most highly concentrated and best-preserved European fossil fields.

As well as a fun way to learn about Fossil hunting and preparation a Fossil workshop is a interesting and educational way to learn about the Jurassic Coast.
