Albian (Gault Clay) and Folkestone beds of the South East of England
The ammonites of the Lower Cretaceous Gault Clay and Folkestone beds of the South East of England has been known as a website for many years and has won for its originator Jim Craig some very important awards. However Websites are transitory in nature and may not be accessible forever. Using the website images and with some help from friends Fred Clouter has developed a guide to identification for the ammonites figured on the website as well as the Nautilus and belemnite species usually found. Featuring explanations about the Gault Clay, the stratigraphy of Copt Point, Folkestone and the position of the various beds, information about ammonites and the terminology used to describe them with a Glossary and sections for the visual identification of a wide variety of species. The list however is not, and cannot be inclusive of all the species found in the Gault clay but includes all of the major families and some very rare specimens. This little book is intended for the average collector but, where possible gives full detail of Family, sub- family, genus, species and horizon and location.
