Roger Frattigiani, born in 1963, grew up in Italy and Germany. His interest in fossils already rose during his earliest youth. In Handewitt, close to Flensburg, Germany, he found his first fossil, a sea urchin. After his secondary modern school qualification, he did an apprenticeship as technician for heating and sanitary facilities and spent four years at the navy in Kiel, Germany. Later he moved to Laichingen, Germany, and is now working as facility manager of a school. Close to this place is the famous Holzmaden lagerstätte and Roger’s old interest in fossils rekindled. After holidays in the Altmühltal, where the Solnhofen lagerstätte had been discovered, he finally confessed himself being fond of lithographic limestones. Since this time Roger collects fossil crustaceans and has already accumulated a really huge collection, which he likes to lend out for scientific investigations.
