Joggins, Nova Scotia, is home to the world's oldest fossilized reptile (Hylonomous lyelli). Many other areas in the Maritimes are also rich in fossilized plants, insects and animals. Nova Scotia, New Brunswick and Prince Edward Island have a complicated geological history, which means lots of interesting rocks and minerals are to be found.

This fully illustrated field guide shows what is available in the region and how to identify individual specimens. It explains what you can and cannot do when you find a fossil or artifact. The guide points to areas where important discoveries have been found, and explains why these special places are protected. This affordable, easy to use guide is a perfect companion on beach walks and nature trails in the Maritimes.
