    -This will be where I upload all of the Morocco fossil pics, with occasional extra ones in the blog (once I get around to digging out the lil' diary I had out there Smile). I'll be putting everything on facebook as well, but probably just the best ones on here.

    The different posts are to separate the finds chronologically, and I will update them along with what info I can get on the localities once I have more time. For now I will leave you with a tantilising few glimpses! geek

    -I still haven't gotten around to photographing everything, and a couple of ammonties still need prepping, but all the best ones will be at the show next week, don't worry!

    -Al-Nif (Trilobite shops, Trilobite locality)

    TREV - Treveropyge/Coltraneia
    Probably my favourite fossil from the trip, even if he is one I bought. (Probably not as good as one of the Asfla ammonites though..)

    I need to talk to you guys about Morocco.. basically I want to do my dissertation fieldwork out there this summer (I know where I'd go to etc, full of ord. trilo's), but 'cos it's foreign/dangerous conditions, the uni say I'd need someone to go with me! I'd be going to Al-Nif, where all the best Trilobite shops are, and there's a cheap Auberge (hotel) in the town, a couple of mini supermarkets and an internet cafe.. and the locality is 10 minutes walk away! I'll probably talk to you guys more about it on Saturday Smile

    Wish I was going back out there camping!!! Although summer isn't really the best time for it, 50c in the day in summer, compared to low 30's in winter, and it's still just as cold at night..

    Still want to go back out there SSSOOO much!

    Also, make sure to answer the Poll at the top!
