Folklore of fossil echinoderms

Do click through and read this most interesting article, about how people all over the UK and wider thought about these lovely fossils – sand dollars, brain dollars, heart and loaf stones; I know them by many names, and the author (who works at the Natural History Museum) has pulled together a fascinating collection of stories around them.

I love finding them when I’m out in a field, and have been known to mount them as a pendant – how cool to know that I’m following the example of a Danish Romano-Celt 🙂
