The chance to hold an Ice Age rock attracted many visitors to GeoSuffolk's stands at Ipswich Museum and Colchester Natural History Museum during the last two days. For many it was the reptile vertebrae brought by ice from Yorkshire and for others, the Acheulian hand axe which were the main attractions. For the child in the photo it was the sabre-teeth of this large extinct cat which held her attention.
Yesterday GeoSuffolk and Suffolk Coast and Heaths AONB volunteers re-exposed this ancient Coralline Crag trough. Hidden for many years, this feature is now available for research workers at an SSSI on private land at Gedgrave. This is part of GeoSuffolk's Coralline Crag programme this winter - see Orford Castle pit CGS (publicly accessible) and Sudbourne Park SSSI.
