has been interested in fossils for as long as he can remember. He started
collecting fossils in the chalk near his home in Cambridge when he was about
10 years old. Mark has collected extensively around the country and has
contributed many specimens to museums including a four metre Ichthyosaurus
that went to Bristol Museum. He has also found the remains of Mammoth and
other Pleistocene mammals such as the Saber-Tooth Cat. His main interest is
ammonites and he has contributed to the ammonites chapter of a book published
by the Palaeontological Association called 'Fossils of the Gault Clay'.
