The name ...

Just started to read 'The map that changed the world' by Simon Winchester. An easy-read historical book about William Smith who single handedly developed the first geological map of most of Britain. Poundstones were used by farmers for measuring weight rather than buying a metallic weight. Where William grew up many farmers choose flattened circular stones which were in fact fossils - Clypeus ploti.
