Fossil Day at Our Dynamic Earth is a free one-day event celebrating outstanding fossils from Scotland and further afield. More than 10 different organisations including the University of Edinburgh, British Geological Survey and National Museums of Scotland will display selected paleontological discoveries, some of which will be on public display for the very first time! A fantastic range of fossils will reveal the diverse evolutionary record found in the rocks around us and showcase current paleontological research projects. Come along to vote for your favourite Scottish Fossil, find out more about the Scottish Fossil Code and marvel at the strange and wonderful ancient creatures that inhabited Earth before us.
We also have a free fun and interactive workshop available ‘Hugh Miller & the Fabulous Fossil Fish‘. Find out what a fossil is and how do they form. Workshop is available at 11am, 1pm and 3pm on Sunday 18th January suitable for ages 8-12, sign up available on the day.
