North Carolina Fossil Fair

Today we set up a VMNH table at the North Carolina Fossil Fair at the the North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences. About 40 other exhibitors were also present, with a wide range of fossils (dominated by specimens from the Carolinas.) We exhibited a sampling of fossils from Carmel Church, Wyoming, and Westmoreland County which were quite popular (over 800 people visited our table!)

One of our most popular specimens at the fair was this fantastic ray tail spine, which was found by Paul Murdoch in Westmoreland County in 2004.

Thanks to the North Carolina Museum for inviting us to participate in the fair.
