2014 Field Season

The 2014 Field Victorian Cretaceous Field Season could well be a single 3-week dig at the Eric the Red West (ETRW) site in the Otway formation.  This site yielded two ornithopod jaws in an 8-day dig last season (thanks to Mary and Sharyn!). In previous years Mary found a mammal jaw, Alanna found what Dr Rich tells us are two partial upper teeth (and to an expert like him apparently that's obvious), and Cate found her first ever tooth,  And of course, the partial ornithopod skeleton that started it all.
We do not think that we will be running Flat Rocks in 2014, and the Koonwarra dig is such a large logistical project that it's too early to tell whether it will be 2014 or 2015.
ETRW is much less accessible and much more difficult to find than the Flat Rocks site, so over the winter we will put some thought into a practical way to run our annual "Friends Day".  Once we figure that out, Gerry will be in contact with the Friends.
