The Jurassic Coast Collection

The Jurassic Coast is one of the world’s most famous fossil sites and is visited by millions of people each year. Historically a key locality for the development of palaeontology, the eroding coastline continues to provide new discoveries and offer inspiration to future generations of earth, ocean and climate scientists. The geology of the Dorset and East Devon Coast provides an unparalleled opportunity to traverse the Mesozoic era. The exceptional fossil fauna and flora, which include vertebrates, invertebrates, plants and microfossils, ensures the Site’s continued recognition and representation among globally significant fossil assemblages.
