Victoria Park (Carboniferous of the United Kingdom)

Where: Scotland, United Kingdom (55.0° N, 4.0° W: paleocoordinates 1.8° S, 3.4° E)

• coordinate based on nearby landmark

When: Limestone Coal Formation (Limestone Coal Group), Serpukhovian (330.9 - 323.2 Ma)

• The stumps lie within the Limestone Coal Group, of early Pendleian age.

• bed-level stratigraphic resolution

Environment/lithology: fluvial; silty mudstone and sandstone

• They (the stumps) are rooted in a silty mudstone, which Gastaldo (1986) interpreted as a paleosol, and the aerial parts were orignially entombed in sandstones, which are probably crevasse-splay deposits
