Evening Echo, Bournemouth, Tuesday, 25 June Newman of the Fossil Department of the British Museum, in charge of operations, claims that this supports his theory that the creatures walked on all fours, not upright, as commonly supposed in the past.
The team had spent that day lifting and packing on to a lorry the last of the pieces of stone bearing dinosaur footprints. He told how earlier that day he had been painting in the last numbers on fragmented pieces of stone, so that they can be reassembled at the Museum, when he noticed that small indentations near the larger footprints recurred frequently along the trackway.
So he examined them very closely, washed out the small cavity and checked the dimensions of each one. They were three toed and symmetrical and he is satisfied that they were made by the front paws of the pre-historic creatures. As reported previously the iguanodon tracks found in the quarry of Messrs J. Suttle near the Municipal Caravan Site on Swanage quarries land are the longest continuous stretch of double prints ever found in this country.
The original discovery 17 months ago was of a single line of 13 footprints running north to south. Six of these prints have been taken up to London. These ran transversely from the others, being east to west and were made by a megalosaurus. This was a "fairly large carnivorous bipedal dinosaur" and the prints were one foot by one foot 30cm and in parts over an inch 2. Pointing out the front footprints he said that they were made by one curved digit and two smaller digits, he added "and they occur so regularly in association with the hind prints that they cannot be dissociated.
He wished to make it clear that though earlier reports referred, correctly, to yards about metres total length of trackway discovered, not all was taken to the British Museum.
About 75 ft 23 m of the side by side tracks had gone and 35 ft 11 m of the single track. Newman paid tribute to Mr John Suttle and his younger brother Mr Wilf Suttle who had given tremendous help and made the operation possible.
This must have been at great financial cost to themselves and their only reward is the knowledge that it is due to them that this important discovery - the most significant of its kind in Europe - will be preserved for ever in the national collection.
Other person involved were Mr E. Oppe of Worth Matravers, Mr P. Brown of Corfe Castle, Mr J. Delair, and Dr A. Charig of the British Museum, who has published photographs of the trackway. Title not known but on dinosaur footprints from Townsend Road, Swanage. Daily Telegraph, Newspaper, 12 September, Most of the prints were made by the three-toed Megalosaurus million years ago.
Footprints of 'new' dinosaur found in quarry [Sunnydown Farm Quarry, near Swanage]. Evening Echo, Bournemouth newspaper28 April The first clue to the unusual nature of the discovery was the extraction of a very large, 76 cm long and 61 cm wide cast of an apparently four-toed footprint photograph was provided. With the agreement and help of the owners Mr. Notley, Dorset County Museum, owned and run by the Dorset Natural History and Archaeological Society, has so far lifted an area of limestone and revealed many more footprints on the site at Sunnydown Farm Quarry.
These have truncated and therefore much shorter, front foot casts just in front of those made by the back foot. Not only are there at least three tracks made by quadrupedal dinosaurs, but also a large number of tridactly footprints criss-crossing the site.
So far sieving and painstaking sorting of residues has yielded many hundreds of minute crocodile teeth, a small teeth of carnivorous dinosaurs, a fragment of a tooth belonging to an herbivorous dinosaur, numerous fragments of lizard jaws and the teeth of a flying reptile pterosaur Still more exciting and quite unexpected is the discovery of mammal teeth.
These are very small, some less than half a millimetre across. They represent the first major finds of such remains sicne first half of the last century when S. Beckles opened his famous mammal pit above Durlston Bay, near Swanage. From a painting commissioned by Shell Oil Co. The photograph was kindly provided by Professor Michael House. The Jurassic System in Great Britain. Proceedings of the Geologists' Association, 45, Report by the Director, W.
The routes to be taken on the four days of the field meeting were explained, and slides were shown illustrating the principal geological features to be visited. The party made the trip to Studland by motor-boat, a special boat having been engaged from the Gondolier fleet of Poole.
By coasting along the chalk cliffs from Ballard Paint to the Foreland a fine view was obtained of the Purbeck Thrust Fault, lit by the morning sun. The caves and pinnacles carved out of the chalk by the sea, and the stratification marked by the rows of flint nodules, showed to perfection.
On landing at Studland, the way was first led along the beach northwards and up the new road to the top of the knoll by the Knoll House Hotel. From this view-point the Director gave a short resume of Captain Diver's interesting researches on the origin of Littlesea and the sand dunes spread out below. The first sharp rise ascended by the party was the old sea-cliff of the Eocene beds, which was traceable northwards all along the west shore of Littlesea. The broad belt of sandhills to the east of this consists of blown sand and is a recent accretion, far the most part grown up since the beginning of the Seventeenth Century.
There are three main rows or ridges of sand. The first, or inner, ridge is covered entirely by heather and ling and looks from a little distance like the Eocene heath beyond Littlesea; the third or outer ridge is of fresh appearance, tufted only with marram grass.
A hogs-back of sand on the beach, already colonised by marram grass, seems to be the embryo of a fourth dune ridge. The Director pleaded far the logical naming of the ridges in the order of their formation, the oldest being called the first, instead of in inverse order as had been done by Captain Diver. He also referred to the richness of these heaths in all forms of natural history products - entomological, botanical and zoological-and to the desirability of preventing, by farming a strong public opinion, their exploitation and permanent defacement for the enrichment of the speculative builder when the present ownership comes to an end.
The Agglestone Rock was next visited, and its origin by weathering of the Bagshot Beds was discussed. The path through the heaths gave an opportunity to see something of the calcifuge flora-heather, heaths, gorse, sundew, etc. The walk back to Studland brought the party to the Banks Arms Hotel at 1 o'clock, where some had their lunch, which they had brought with them, while others preferred it on the beach below.
After lunch the brightly variegated Bagshot Sands in the cliff at Redend Point were examined, and the origin of the long vertical pipes with ironstone linings formed a subject for speculation. The Director gave a short account of the Lower Tertiary strata of this end of the Hampshire Basin, referring especially to the westerly overlaps in the sequence, the passage of the Bagshots into gravel, and to the Poole and Wareham pottery industry.
The junction of the Reading Beds and the Chalk were next examined in the southern corner of the bay, and the nature of the unconformity was discussed. From here the party ascended the cliff through the rather dense undergrowth and walked round the cliff-top to Swanage Bay. At Punfield Gap the Director gave an account of the" Punfield Beds" controversy and pointed out the exact positions of the Perna Bed, Judd's so called" marine band," and other features of interest.
Members then examined the section, from the Wealden Shales to the Chalk, with the help of copies of the description culled from the various chapters of Strahan's memoir, which had been duplicated and handed out in the morning with diagrams of the cliffs and a geological map of Purbeck. The section was studied at some length, and members returned along the beach to Swanage at their leisure, in time for a late tea.

The total distance walked was 6 miles. Durlston Bay and Tilly Whim Caves. In the morning some members made an unofficial excursion in private cars to Lulworth and the fossil forest. In the afternoon the whole party walked to Peveril Point and thence round Durlston Bay as far as the faults, to examine in detail the type section of the Purbeck Beds. Many fossils were collected from the Purbeck Marble, Corbula Beds, Cinder Bed, and Mammal Bed - the last yielding some very well preserved minute freshwater gastropods.
Special attention was drawn to the zonal value in these strata of the ostracods, and to the work of Forbes, Rupert Jones, Koert, Maillard, Merrett and others in correlating them with the equivalent beds in Wiltshire and Oxfordshire, the Weald, Germany and the Jura Mountains. The Director also laid stress on the evidence of an important marine incursion all over the South of England during the Middle Purbeck, as shown by the Cinder Bed, and the presence of Hemicidaris, Trigonia, Perna, Mytilus, Pecten, Protocardia, etc.
In spite of Salfeld's correlation of the German Serpulite with the Cherty Series of the Portland Stone, which also abounds in Serpulae, the Director held strongly that the view of all the earlier geologists was right; namely, that the Serpulite was the equivalent of the Middle Purbeck Beds and the Munder Marls of the Lower Purbeck Beds.
All the evidence of the Ostracods and other fauna, as well as the detailed lithology of the whole Purbeck series, is in agreement with this view; and the Serpula of the Serpulite is S. Two interesting palceontological finds were mentioned by the Director; the discovery by Professor Hawkins of a colony of the rare Hemicidaris purbeckensis, comprising 38 tests and fragments of tests, in the Cinder Bed at this point Quart. This Isopod occurs in myriads in a similar bed in the Middle Purbeck of the Vale of Wardour, but it had not been previously located on the same horizon in Purbeck.
The party, although numerous, were unsuccessful in finding Hemicidaris, Trigonia, Archaeoniscus or mammals. The Purbeck Beds, although highly fossiliferous, require much patient search to yield results. Climbing up the zig-zag path below Middle Durlston, the party walked to Durlston Castle for tea, and afterwards on to Tilly Whim Caves. At the end of the descent of the tunnel a short account was given of the succession of the Portland Stone displayed, special reference being made to the oyster bed and to the quarrying industry here and in Purbeck generally.

Quarrying, in fact, has alone been responsible for the cutting of these and the many similar galleries and ledges between Durlston and St. Some of the party inspected Anvil Point lighthouse, and all found their way home on foot in their own time. Alban's Head and Chapman's Pool. Leaving the motor-coaches at Worth Matravers, members descended the valley to Winspit, where they studied the whole succession of the Portland Stone down to below the middle of the Cherty Series.
The Freestone Series was studied in the abandoned quarries and the Cherty Series in the cliff-path and sea-ledges below, where a serpulite composed of S. At the end of the coastguards' path to St.
Alban's Head, another quarry in the upper part of the Freestone Series was visited on the point of the headland. Here the Under Freestone has become thin and cherty and is not worked, and the floor of the quarry is formed by the Chert Vein, the stone wrought being the Pon or Pond Freestone.
This quarry provides a particularly fine section of the Shrimp Bed and Purbeck Caps. On emerging from the quarry a visit was paid to the Norman chapel before beginning the descent of Pier Bottom to Chapman's Pool, where lunch was taken on the grass slope above the Pool. From this vantage point the Director gave an account of the stratigraphy of the Portland Sand and Upper Kimeridge Clay of the surrounding cliffs; and drew attention to the reexcavated valleys here and at Winspit, mentioned in a recent paper by Mr.
The afternoon was quickly passed on the shore of Chapman's Pool and under Hounstout, collecting ammonites chiefly Pavlovia rotunda and allied forms from the Rotunda Nodules and Crushed Ammonoid Shales.

Tea was spread ready in the garden of the Post Office stores. After tea the motor-coaches were taken to Corfe, where some members alighted to see the castle, while the main body turned south to visit the remarkable tufa deposit near Blashenwell.
The quarry still showed a good section about 5 ft. A lively discussion arose as to the mode of origin of the deposit see Reid, On the way the motor-coaches were stopped at Kingston to visit the Eldon memorial church, built entirely of Portland Stone and Purbeck Marble quarried on the estate.

Although in traditional quarryworkers terms they are useful as confirmation of later work on these sequences West, It is of passing interest to notice that William Joscelyn Arkell managed to get to some rather inaccessible places, like the eastern end of Gad Cliff in the s, presumably before he had health problems. Three tectonic problems of the Lulworth district: Quarterly Journal of the Geological Society, London, 94, By William Joscelyn Arkell, M. In the cliffs of the Dorset coast the sea has laid bare all parts of the structure, from the core or crestal region, through the vertical and overturned middle limb and the "foresyncline" Buskp.
The general and some special aspects of the fold and its associated faults have been discussed in a previous paper Arkell, I The present paper results from a study of the middle limb, where it is dissected by the sea cliffs of the Lulworth district.
These cliffs have long been renowned for their beauty, but their marvellous tectonic features, both great and small, have been neglected, with the result that their value to students of tectonics has not been fully utilized. The first three parts of the paper attempt a solution of the three most outstanding problems: The fourth part offers an interpretative essay and synthesis.
The area dealt with is included in sheet of the Geological Survey one-inch map and sheet of the Ordnance Survey one-inch map. Contortions in the Purbeck Beds: In the sides of the little recess the rest of the Purbeck Beds, above the top of the Cypris Freestones, consisting of alternations of limestone and marl, shale, or clay seen in dipsection, begin to assume from below upwards an increasingly large knee-shaped anticlinal bend. The apex of the bend is directed upwards and outwards, towards the north, with the short horizontal limb to the south.
In the Corbula and Beef Beds upper part of the Middle Purbeck and Upper Purbeck strata, the sharp apex of the anticline becomes blunter with increasing size.
In these beds, near the top of the east cliff, a second but smaller sharp anticline develops above the horizontal limb of the other. This is of the same type as the larger flexure, with the apex pointing in the same direction, but it is more overturned northwards, and it does not affect strata below the Cinder Bed.
There are signs of a third fold just below the top of the cliff, but the upward continuation has been eroded away. The intervening synclines are closed and approaching recumbent. This structure, which may be called the Lulworth crumple, is continued in the direction of strike for a visible distance of a mile and a half, but the other sections are not so good.

His remark, "It is rather surprising that this very ancient freshwater formation should not have excited more attention," might almost be said to be still true; for since J. Sowerby figured a couple of species of Viviparus from the Purbeck Beds in and six species of lamellibranchs in that year and in in Fitton's memoirno further Purbeckian mollusca have been adequately figured in this country or described in the English language.
Edward Forbes was preparing a monograph on the invertebrate fauna of the Purbeck Beds when his work was cut short in by his death at the age of All that appeared was a preliminary account, in which the genera Viviparus, Valvata.

Ensbury House, July, The record of fossils and old bed names is useful. Fisher's log is a modification of this. The vegetative structure of a Lower Cretaceous conifer from Arkansas: Analysis of these fossils contributes new data to an emerging whole plant concept, and allows for comparison with a previous reconstruction of a P. The Arkansas vegetative shoots differ in lacking any open-sheathed leaves, the presence of papillae on all subsidiary cells, and the absence of a hypodermis.
Furthermore, the Arkansas conifer exhibited helically arranged branches throughout, in contrast to the whorled branching of the Wealden plant reconstruction. The woods from Arkansas and England have identical thickened bars between the tracheid pits, and a similar arrangement of crossfield pits. However, the Arkansas wood has much higher rays, and lacks mixed pitting. These findings, along with previous accounts of significant differences in pollen cone structure, indicate that the Arkansas and English Wealden conifers represent different biological species with generally similar leafy shoots.
Therefore, concepts regarding the biogeography, paleoecology, and phylogeny of P. Latest Jurassic to earliest Cretaceous paleoenvironmental changes in the Southern Carpathians, Romania: Life and the environment during the Cretaceous, 7th International Symposium on the Cretaceous.
This age is supported by the presence of the calpionellid assemblages assigned to the Crassicollaria, Calpionella, and Calpionellopsis Zones. A detailed qualitative and semiquantitative analysis of the nannoflora was carried out over this interval.
To estimate the surface water fertility conditions, the nannoplankton-based nutrient index NI was calculated. The fluctuation pattern of NI allow us to recognize four phases in the investigated interval, as follows: We assume that maximum of eutrophication in the studied interval from the Southern Carpathians was in the Furcillata ammonite Zone.
Notably, within the phases 2 and 3, the morphological changes identified in the benthic foraminiferal assemblages the predominance of flattened morphologies, together with the presence of conical and trochospiral inflated formsas well as the occurrence of the Zoophycos trace fossils and pyrite framboids, indicate dysaerobic conditions.
