Paleozoic Kansas
by: Doug

Hey Dallis, thanks for making a submission. I can't give you much help with identification for either piece though.

What I can tell you is that the rocks of southeastern Kansas are mostly from the Pennsylvanian epoch of the Carboniferous Period. During this time Kansas was alternately dry land and covered by shallow seas.

You can find out more about the rocks in Kansas here:
