Handle and explore the fascinating world of fossils (bring a magnifying glass if you have one).

Suitable for all ages.


How do fossils form, how Old are they & Where are they from?


Why do they change & evolve with time?


Early “fossilists” and how they /we use them to piece together geological puzzles?


Concluding with a further hands-on session where you will play at creating a geological timescale using fossils! Come and hold something that’s 400 Million years old!
