There are lots of good UK guides like this one, to areas such as Dorset and Yorkshire, and many areas of Scotland and Wales, for example.. another excellent example of that genre. In fact, this is the book is the first I have seen on the New Forest of Hampshire.
Dr Barnet's guide is a handy and well written book that any geologist - professional or amateur - interested in Palaeogene life will find informative and of practical use.
Before visiting a new area, I always like to check out the geology (doesn’t everyone?) and will definitely be taking this book with me when I go to the New Forest. The aim of being a complete guide to the geology and fossils of the area is achieved in an engaging and accessible way.
