March 4th - Life and Times of the Carboniferous 'Coal Age'

'The Joggins Fossil Cliffs of Nova Scotia - Dr. Howard Falcon-Lang, Royal Holloway, University of London. 7.30 p.m. 16 Queen Square, Bath
The Joggins Fossil Cliffs is a UNESCO World Heritage Site on the Bay of Fundy, Nova Scotia. These remote and wild cliffs were first made famous by Charles Lyell and William Dawson, who found spectacular fossil forests and early reptile skeletons in the 1840s and 1850s. Dr. Falcon-Lang's talk will deal with the history of research at the site as well as the exciting new discoveries of more recent times - all of which shed a light on the life and times of the Carboniferous 'Coal Age'.
Everyone is welcome - visitors £4.00.
Other lectures organised by the Bath Geological Society can be viewed on the website.
