Fossils of the Jurassic Coast is one of our bestselling books – by none other than our resident geologist Sam Scriven. The ideal reference book for anyone interested in fossils or the Jurassic Coast, it is Caroline’s Jurassic Christmas staff pick. If you’d like a signed copy, please let us know.

“I have chosen this book as I think it’s a real crowd pleaser. If you have a friend or family member that you always struggle to think of a gift for, this book is the answer. This is not some fusty academic publication but a family friendly guide that can be enjoyed by anyone whether they previously had an interest in fossils or not. It’s a book to dip in and out of and inspires the reader to visit different parts of the coast and see which fossils are found where. The photos and illustrations are beautiful and the whole book conveys Sam’s smiley passion for all things Jurassic! For less than a tenner you get a quality book.”
