About the Session 

What is a fossil? How do we learn about life in the past? A talk with object handling which emphasizes scientific enquiry and ideas and evidence. We'll investigate how a whole animal can be rebuilt from just a few bones and build an understanding of why creative thinking is such an important skill for palaeontologists. We'll also look at why some myths and legends might well be based on fossils.

Duration: 1.5 hours

Session Format: 5 minute introduction to the museum, 15 minutes exploration, 1 hour taught session with object handling and group work

Available: Tuesday and Wednesday mornings and all day Thursday. All Seasons.
