About

Kathi (Fossillad) Joseph) and two sons
Kathi (Fossillady) husband, Joseph and Two Sons

The very first fossil I ever collected was given to me by my late husband, Joseph. It turned out to be a Calymene, celebra trilobite shown below. The next thing I knew, his friend donated an entire collection for me to share with my classroom. I was enchanted by the fossils and wanted to learn as much about them as I could. I even created posters and drawings of what they may have looked like as living creatures, which are included in my blog. My students were super intrigued when I presented them and I’ve been hooked ever since.

  1. Just returned to your ammonites. I’m washing a couple right now, from our (U.K.) “Jurassic Coast”, in blue lias. Also, ‘devils toenails’ found under a cottage we are restoring – it is 300+ feet ASL and 25 miles inland!
