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.
