Om din vært

I hold a Ph. D. in Palaeobiology (the study of ecology and evolution in deep time) and am a Chartered Geologist. During my research career I carried out research in the Smithsonian Institute Museum of Natural History, The Natural History Museum, London and The Natural History Museum, Berlin.

Hvad vi skal lave

Easy walk on the streets of central Edinburgh to find fossils in the building stones and pavements. Discover fish, ammonoids, plants and other fossilised critters and find out more about 'deep time' and the history of life on Earth as recorded in the rocks. Looking at buildings and the historic landscape of Edinburgh also leads on to stories about the social and cultural history of the city.
