COLLECTION OF 12 INFERIOR OOLITE AMMONITES FROM THE CLASSIC LOCALITY OF OBORNE WOOD, DORSET


Oborne is a small hamlet in North Dorset, close to the border with Somerset. Three localities at Oborne were extensively collected from by S.S.Buckman with material described in his work Monograph of the Inferior Oolite Ammonites (1887-1907). All three, Frogden, Mill Close Farm and Oborne Wood, produced well preserved specimens. Oborne Wood is now finished. This collection was made some time ago and many of the specimens have their original hand written labels. You cannot get material like this any more.
