EGS Public Lecture: Scotland’s Fossils

Our public lecture will explore the amazing variety of fossils found in Scotland, covering hundreds of millions of years of evolution from the corals and sharks of the Carboniferous to the dinosaurs and pterosaurs of Skye. Our expert panel of palaeontologists will guide you through the history of life recorded in Scotland’s sedimentary rocks with time to ask questions and look at specimens.

The lecture celebrates the first UNESCO International Geodiversity Day: a worldwide celebration, bringing people together on 6th October each year, to promote all the many aspects of geodiversity.
