A beloved friend introduced me to the free fossil-hunting site just off of Highway 45, about a mile north of Hwy 30, between Tupelo, MS (to the south) and Booneville, MS (to the north).  It is possible to dig into the silt of the stream of Twenty-Mile creek and upon sifting, find fossil shark teeth (see above) and other cool ancient material.  The lovely location was discovered years ago during road excavation.  A very informative geologic bulletin was put together to describe the history and possible fossils located at the site.  This is truly one of the delights of a science nerd like me: looking for fossils at the Frankstown, MS fossil site!

This looks perfect (to me) for fossil digging at the Frankstown site!
