Fossils of the Jurassic Coast is about our relationship with the deep past – a place we journey to using science, and bring to life with our imagination.

The fossils of the Jurassic Coast World Heritage Site represent a unique record of the history of life on Earth. Recognised as being globally important they are a source of revelation, illustrating the tenacity of life and some of the wondrous diversity that has existed over time as a result of evolution.

Through the study of these fossils we witness the struggle of our mammal ancestors during the reign of the giant reptiles, realise the profound and sometimes catastrophic implications of environmental change, and come to understand something of our own species through the nature of our insatiable curiosity and unrelenting pursuit of understanding.

Jurassic Coast Earth Science Manager, Sam Scriven, gives a new and engaging perspective on the fossils found on the Jurassic Coast in this 228-page full colour book. He reveals the mystery and excitement that lies at the heart of geological heritage and showcases the extraordinary treasures of the Dorset and East Devon Coast through a wealth of stunning photographs and specially commissioned illustrations and diagrams.

This book is a must for anyone interested in the Jurassic Coast, in fossils or in the development of life on earth.
