Also known as Hordwell
Where: England, United Kingdom (50.7° N, 1.6° W: paleocoordinates 47.5° N, 5.0° W)
• coordinate based on nearby landmark
• local area-level geographic resolution
When: Eocene (56.0 - 33.9 Ma)
• The Marchioness calls this Stratum 16, but she's including everying in the sequence. Based on a comparison of her and Cray, 1974, it is unclear whether this is part of the Headon Beds (and part of the Mammal Bed) or the Barton Beds.
• bed-level stratigraphic resolution
Environment/lithology: marginal marine; gray, green claystone and lignite
Size class: macrofossils
Collection methods: In 1852, the Marchioness of Hastings published an almost identical paper to her 1853 report. I used the later English version, but the earlier paper is the more primary reference.
