Five-Year-Old Digs Up 160 Million-Year-Old Fossil

| Filed under: AnglophiliaAmazing


Emily Baldry, a five-year-old British girl, dug up a 160 million-year-old fossil near a lake while at a park one day.

With the help of her father, they pulled out the 16 inch wide fossil of an extinct giant mollusk.

They then gave the fossil to an archaeologist who spent a year cleaning it and whittling it down to nothing but pure fossil.

Emily named the fossil "Spike," due to the defensive spines sticking out of the shell.

Talking about finally getting back the cleaned fossil, Emily said:

“It is so exciting to see him. I was very happy when I first saw him and now he looks very shiny.”

The archaeologist who restored the fossil said:

"This is the first ammonite of this kind to be discovered whole in Britain. The rest have all been fragments."

That’s awesome!

Way to go, Emily!
