Ammonites. Small and large ammonites clustered around pieces of wood. These are extinct marine animals which lived between 380 and 65 million years ago. Distantly related to the modern-day nautilus, ammonites were cephalopod molluscs, resembling a squid-like animal within a coiled shell. They lived in coastal waters and inland seas. These ammonites were found in lower lias rock of Lyme Regis, England. Lower lias is limestone rock which was laid down in the early Jurassic period (195-172 million years ago). These ammonites are from Andy Barton Cowap's Classic Jurassic collection.
