A practical guide to identifying, understanding and hunting for fossils.

Fossil classification and distribution are described, providing essential background information for students and collectors.

Fossil hunting is described in detail with practical advice on everything from finding sites to displaying specimens.The main part of the book presents major groups of fossils, from trilobites to tree ferns in a wide international range, from the common and easy-to-find, to dinosaur bones that would crown any collection.
