Echinoderm microfossil dating
Since the fossils are so fragmented, it is impossible for me to accurately identify or date them.
How microfossils were collected at Site #1 As previously noted, most road cuts are off limits to diggers.
We are granted rights to surface collect in many roadside areas (not interstates or major state highways) but signs of digging have caused us to loose the right to surface collect on several occasions.
The Bellbrook sample did not come from the Ward's collection.
The sample was contributed by a geology student from University of Dayton, Dayton, Ohio.
