I have been collecting urban fossils since my mother told me: “no more dirty rocks in your room”. Since then, I have realized that personal fossil collections are pointless and selfish - fossils are a non-renewable resource.

The main goal of Paleourbana is to provide a global database of urban fossil sites for fossil lovers all over the world.

I am not a professional Palaeontologist, so please, forgive any mistakes in this website and feel free to make suggestions to improve it.
