place names and fossils
Many may recall my request a couple of years ago about place names
around the world related to fossil deposits.
I want to thank everyone who responded and let you know that the
article is now published, in a special volume on the emerging field
of "Geomythology" by the Geological Society of London. Many of the
papers might be of interest to paleontologists.
Here is the reference:
Adrienne Mayor. 2007. "Place Names Describing Fossils in Oral
Traditions." In L. Piccardi and W. B. Masse, eds., Myth and Geology.
London: Geological Society, Special Publication 273, pp 245-261.
I have the paper as a pdf. Contact me off list if you would like me
to email the pdf.
