80 million year old fossil found

80 million year old fossil found by New England Secession.
After analysing it, Dr Jarzembowski confirmed it was a fossil, and was "virtually indestructible" as it was preserved in flint, rather than chalk. He said it dated from the Cretaceous Period - between 145m and 65m years ago.

He said: "Quite simply it is priceless. I have shown it to other geologists and they are certain that it is absolutely a fossil. It's not a sculpture.
