About Us

byron and ammonite cluster

Fossils-uk.com is owned and run by Byron Blessed.

Byron has both an undergraduate bachelor’s degree in Geology from Cardiff University, as well as a Master’s of Science degree in Palaeobiology from Bristol University.

Byron started Fossils-uk.com while at university and was the first website in the UK to do so. Long before google and eBay. This was in 1998.

Once finishing his degrees then Byron opened his retail store called “Natural Wonders” in the picturesque seaside town of Whitby, North Yorkshire. An area rich in fossil finds.

So we have been selling fossils online and in the store for over 20 years. The fact we are still doing it must mean we are doing something right.

We currently attend the following fossil and mineral shows around the world:-

Tucson fossil and mineral show, Tuscon, Arizona, USA

FossilienBorse, Leinfelden, Stuttgart, Germany

St. Marie-aux-Mines Fossil and Mineral Show, Alsace, France

Munich Fossil and Mineral Show, Munich, Germany

Essex Fossil and Mineral Show, Romford, Essex, England

Oxford Fossil and Mineral Show, Kidlington, Oxford, England

Bakewell Fossil and Mineral Show, Bakewell, Derbyshire, England

Scarborough fossil festival, Scarborough, North Yorkshire, England
