Local Geology and Fossils

About

Can you imagine Hastings in prehistoric times?
Do you know where to find fossils and dinosaur footprints?
Some of the largest dinosaurs lived in the Hastings area before they all died out millions of years ago, and the evidence can still be seen in local rocks – if you know where to look.

In this illustrated talk (on Sunday, 25th August, 2.30pm), by Ken Brooks, geologist and Chairman of the Hastings & District Geological Society, we will travel back to Hastings as it was 140 million years ago. With the help of images on a large screen we will see how fossils can be used to understand the animals and environments of the distant past. We will discover where to see dinosaur footprints and how to recognise fossils on the beach.

At the end of the talk the new Dinosaur Diorama and fossils display will be unveiled.

Places are limited so telephone 01424 437452 to book in advance.
The talk lasts approximately 1 hour.

Entry : Adults £3, Children £2.
