    The gravel pit of the gravel works Ohle & Lau GmbH is known as a spectacular find place of fossils and attachments.
    Since the beginning of commercial clay mining in Groß Pampau in the 1980s and 1990s, remains of fossil whales and other marine creatures date back to about 11 million years ago. They sank on the seabed of the primordial North Sea and were embedded in deposited layers of so-called mica clay, as in a "time capsule". Today they can be salvaged, prepared and exhibited.
