On a recent visit to the Heritage Workshop Centre in Wildes Score we were shown this magnificent glacial erratic dug up only yards from the Centre. Its numerous bivalved fossils point to derivation from Jurassic-Cretaceous origins way to the north. The Centre is open from 10 - 4 on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays - admission free.
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.
