The Madingley Fossil Diggings

ByBernard O'Connor

Usually printed in 3 - 5 business days
In the 1840s a bed of 'coprolites', thought by some to be fossilised dinosaur droppings, was discovered in the Cambridgeshire fens. Rich in phosphate it was much in demand by the nation’s manure manufacturers. By the 1860s it was being dug up across much of the county. This book investigates the social, economic and archaeological impact of the fossil diggings in Madingley, a small, rural community west of Cambridge.
