Black River Fossils - All About the Hunt
Welcome to Black River Fossils, a site all about collecting fossils, artifacts, and other interesting things. There are thousands of fossil pictures here, being steadily added on an almost weekly basis since 1998. You have found a place to spend a few hours at work looking at pictures that won't get you fired. If you like stories of digging up old teeth bones, take a look around.
We used to focus on shark teeth and other fossils in the Lowcountry of South Carolina, but now its so much more thanks to the efforts of other amateur fossil and artifact hunters. It has become an internet fossil journal for many collectors from different places with great details at times about the kinds of fossils that can be found around the United States and Europe. I have no doubt that the site will continue to thrive and grow. Thanks so much to everyone who has contributed. You are inspiring people everywhere to dig to new depths!
Summerville South Carolina Fossil Hunting Status Update
A friend of the site contacted me with some information from the Director of Stormwater here in Summerville SC. The official stance is that fossil hunting with any kind of tool is prohibited in the streams, ditches, canals, etc in the town of Summerville. This includes everything from rakes to shovels, all the way down to hand trowels.
