North Norfolk residents are no strangers to the weird and wonderful historical artefacts that are found washed up along the shoreline.
But now leading academics have teamed up to shed some light on North Norfolk's fossil finds, as the Fossil Roadshow comes to Cromer.
The Norfolk Museum's Service has teamed up with the British Museum and the Natural History Museum to record all of the fossils and flint artefacts that have been discovered in the area.
The feat, which has never been attempted before, brings the team to Cromer where they will spend a day sharing their knowledge and expertise.
Both experts and beginner fossil hunters are invited to the Cromer Museum for free between 10.30am and 3.30pm on Friday, July 28, to explore some of the finds identified by the scientists.
