Oh, Oh ! Never mind the stunning fact that Mark Lammmaaarr is doing a show on BBC2 as I type these very words, and it has reggae, rock and all sorts of musical bollocks, today, whilst clambering down an un-named stream that becomes Mithil Brook when it turns West, I noticed a stone with some marks, and those marks are Graptolites ! My second favourite fossils ! Brilliant !
Here is a piece of Ordovician seabed, with a few Diplograptus Multitudes, from a pelagic sea of something about 400 million years before present. More of less. What a strange thing to touch the remains of an extinct species that once filled the seas. Floating in a deep sea of a time before even iPods and tinned lager were known.
