This section contains an overview of some fossils from the Ordovician Period to be found in Southern Ontario. This area was covered by the sea around one hundred seventy million years ago, and representative fossil samples of the kinds of life may be found in the sedementary rocks in gravel pits and near river beds. I hope that you enjoy this story about my findings during the early 1960's. You may CLICK HERE for a Fossil Expedition during this time period before the river was dammed at Magwood Park.
