Piearce, T. G. and Oates, K. and Carruthers, W. J. (1992) Fossil earthworm cocoons from a Bronze Age site in Wiltshire, England. Soil Biology and Biochemistry, 24 (12). pp. 1255-1258.Full text not available from this repository.
Earthworm cocoons, preserved by phosphatic mineralization, have been collected from beneath a Bronze Age midden in southern England. Variations in cocoon size and form suggest that the material originates from more than one species. Fine structural features include superficial longitudinal striations.
