Please help our search for missing ammonites


During the transport and relocation of an exhibition between May 2018 and January 2021, a wooden transport box weighing approx. 200 kg was lost in which five fossils, more precisely large and impressive ammonites, were stored. The pieces are distinctive and very eye-catching. These are ammonites from the Lower Cretaceous.


The exhibit "MeerErleben" has been running for over a decade as a major touring exhibition at the University of Bremen and was on display in numerous shopping centers, at the German Research Foundation (DFG) and other locations throughout Germany and other European countries.

We ask for information if the pieces were seen anywhere outside of the exhibition mentioned, e.g. also in online shops, to:

Prof. Dr. J. Lehmann, Universität Bremen, jens.lehmann(at)

Information will be treated confidentially upon request.
