A north Norfolk village famous for fossils is hoping to inspire a new generation of mammoth hunters.
The third West Runton Rocks roadshow is held today at the West Runton Beach Cafe.
The annual fossil, rock, shell and mineral roadshow offers amateur archeologists the chance to have their finds unidentified by experts.
And some mammoth exhibits will be on display, including a two million-year-old leg bone found last year.
The event, on Friday, August 24, runs from 10am to 5pm at Seaview Carpark on Water Lane, and includes arts and crafts stalls, and guided rock pool and fossil hunting.
Cafe manager Louise O'Shea said: 'The NWT are doing rockpooling from 11am to 1pm and fossil hunting from 2pm to 5.30pm.
'I've got several local collectors here too and there's a massive selection of mammoth teeth, and a mammoth tibia which is about two million years old'
