New home for fossils

No surprise there - the IoM has always been an excellent home for the two-legged variety of fossil. But this is a bit different. These little beggers are over 300 million years old and come from an earlier period of global warming when the Irish Sea was sub-tropical rather than perishing cold. After 70 years they now belobg to the museum after a very long loan period.
