Dr. Liam Herringshaw: Fossils from Teesside to Spurn: Why Mary Anning would have loved the Yorkshire Coast. – Thu 7 Sep 2023

Dr. Liam Herringshaw: Fossils from Teesside to Spurn: Why Mary Anning would have loved the Yorkshire Coast.

Thursday 7 September, 4:30pm-5:30pm, ONLINE

With Dr Liam Herringshaw

Mary Anning never visited Yorkshire, but she’d have felt right at home among the coastal rocks and fossils. This is especially true at Redcar and Robin Hood’s Bay, where the rocks contain fossils of the same age as those of Lyme Regis and Charmouth. The Yorkshire Coast is uniquely different to Dorset, though, in that not only does much of its Jurassic and Cretaceous bedrock contain fossils, but so do the Ice Age deposits draped on top of them.

The talk will be available to watch on YouTube and Facebook.
