Hello, I hope you can help. I found the attached fossil in a field, close to Wimborne in Doset, a village called Hinton Martell; I often find Roman bronze items, huge quantities of Iron/Bronze age pottery and a myriad of flint items.

This is the first non-flint contained fossil I have found and was curious as to its' orignal owner.

All help greatly appreciated.

Many thanks

Really hard to tell from the photos I'm afraid Martin.  But if this is found in an area with lots of flint, my first guess would be that it's a [heavily weathered] rugose coral of some sort. However, I can't see any distinctive features that would verify that.
