Course Description

Why do fossils matter? What do palaeontologists do? How can shells and bones tell us the history of life on Earth? All these topics and more will be examined in this one-day palaeontology course, uncovering the pioneers of the subject, the fossils you're most likely to discover and the best places to find them. Participants will study the common fossil groups, learn how to identify fossil tracks and traces, and learn how to identify ancient environments based on key fossil types. No previous experience of the subject is necessary.
