The Jurassic Coast is a largely undeveloped area and where a series of fossil that date back to the Mesozoic era have been found. The Mesozoic Era began about 250 million years ago and are divided into three time spans; The Triassic, The Jurassic and the Cretaceous. Hence the origin of the name of the Jurassic Coast. Through the center of the Dorset region are the Dorset Downs which is a chalk downs area which is mainly agricultural with farms, dairy cattle and a hunting preserve mixed with the remaining forest of the area. The coastal areas of Weymouth, Swanage, Poole and Bournemouth are popular tourist destinations.
