  • The Museum by Gram clay pit contains particular fossils found in Gram clay pit. Forsteningerne is estimated to be about 10 million. years old, as the area was covered by sea. One can dig into Lergraven and home take the fossils to be found-and often you'll find something. The staff is incredibly helpful in telling. Entreeen is cheap. One should count on being well muddy but musset loaning rubber boots and other equipment. Musset is of moderate size and have a shop where you can buy fossils etc. from all over the world. You can take public transport to Grams, but a private car will be a big advantage. Digging in the Lergraven is best in reasonably good weather.
