Historic fossil find in Mid Wales

No doubt you’re wondering why a political site is mentioning a news story about science.

It’s true that a historic discovery of fossils dating back to one of the earliest periods of Earth’s history has been made near the Mid Wales town of Llandrindod Wells, near where This Writer currently lives:

Museum Wales researchers found the fossils in rocks laid down under the sea more than 460 million years ago.

Over 170 species, including rare soft-bodied animals, were discovered in 2020 on private land known as Castle Bank.

Almost all the previous examples are from the Cambrian period, but Castle Bank dates from the middle Ordovician, some 50 million years later.

This Writer would just like to clarify that, despite the comments of some critics, I am not the fossil that was found.

Seriously, it’s amazing that something as scientifically significant as this has been found nearby and I wanted to share my pleasure that it has happened.
