Jurassaic Jim.  I began fossil hunting at the age of 8 with my father. 50 years on my lifelong interest in fossiling has continued. I now sell to Museums, places of interest, fossil shops and direct to collectors both in the UK and Internationaly, both through my website and from my shop at 22, High Street, Shanklin on the Isle of Wight.
