Mammoth's Tooth

Terrific few days camping with family at East Runton in Norfolk over half-term. We walked down to the beach in the blazing sunshine and explored along the cliff edges and the exposed chalk reefs, with the children splashing in the pools. We found many belamnite fossils and to my delight I found a mammoths tooth. It was near here that my father-in-law found a mammoth vertibra several years ago and although this coast is famous for it's mammal fossils I couldn't believe my luck. Showed a lot of people in the campsite and hopefully inspired a new generation of children to look carefully at the rocks on the beach.
