Founded in 2010, UKAFH (UK Amateur Fossil Hunters) is now the largest fossil hunting society in the UK, specifically aimed at the amateur fossil collector and enthusiast. We encourage everyone, of all ages, to enjoy the rewarding fossil hunting experience at some of our great organised hunts.
UKAFH is now owned by UK Fossils, a subsidiary of UKGE (the market leader in the provision of geological supplies). UKAFH has successfully grown over the years and we are now in a position to supply the resources and time to expand this organisation even more, whilst retaining the emphasis on family events.
“We are a family friendly club and offer frequent fossil hunts across the UK at some of the very best fossil sites. Whether you’re just starting out or are already a seasoned collector, this is a terrific club to be part of, our aim is to bring fossil enthusiasts together, to respect the fossil collecting code of conduct, and to educate the next generation” – Alister Cruickshanks, UKAFH Owner
We have a great track record and lots of happy members! Everyone will find a UKAFH hunt to be a great day out! It’s a fun and educational experience for families and individuals and moreover, the sites we visit will guarantee success in you finding fossils to take away, along with memories of a richly rewarding experience.
UKAFH’s team are highly experienced in providing regular fossil hunts. We have great leaders, all of whom are very knowledgeable about the locations we visit and the fossils to be found there. All UKAFH leaders are fully trained in First Aid.
Events are either Pay-as-you-go or all events free for members via our low cost annual membership.
We also offer a place to communicate and share with UKAFH members knowledge, opinion and experiences on our Facebook page.
