Fossil Hunting in the Jura Mountains of Holderbank


Another one of my trips through prehistoric Switzerland, this time in the Jurassic sponge-reef of Holderbank, Aargau. I do not have much to add to this video textwise, so instead I will use the quick opportunity here to raise awareness for a far better fossil hunter and paleontologist than I am: Mary Anning. Just yesterday I found out that a new crowdfunding campaign has been started by 11-year old Dorset girl Evie Swire and her family in order to raise money for a statue of Anning to be erected in her hometown of Lyme Regis. As Anning, in my opinion, still often doesn’t get enough credit for some of her work, I highly encourage my readers to at least pay attention to the project.

That is it for now, we will likely see us again around Christmas time.
