Tick Tock – Layers of Rock – Sat 11 Jun 2016

Current scientific calculation has the Earth at over 4.5 billion years old, and humans have only been on its surface for a fraction of that time. When did we start to become aware of deep time? And who decided (and decides) how to measure it? Come and find out more in this talk, with a rare chance to handle the oldest object in YMT’s collections, the unique Middlesbrough Meteorite – the same age as the Solar System.

£10 per person – (includes museum admission).

Tickets are available online – please click here to book.
