Pavement Palaeontology: Fossils Around Edinburgh

10/10/2017 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Scotland has many famous fossil sites but you don’t have to go into the wilds to see them. Come on a Pavement Palaeontology tour with Dr Al McGowan, a working geologist and palaeontologist, to find fossils hidden in the heart of Edinburgh that are incorporated in buildings and pavements. Even if your interest is primarily in architecture or building stones, the tour offers insights into these aspects as well. The tour starts and finishes at Mr Wood’s Fossils in the Grassmarket. For more details, a handout and description can be found on the Hills of Hame website.

Booking essential – contact Hills of Hame.
