A Timely Discovery
Friday 19th May 2017This event has passed.

Have you ever thought about time? In particular, how much time has passed since the formation of the Earth? Come along and discover how people first recognised that there was more to it than met the eye. Find out how early geologists worked without a timescale, and understand how Arthur Holmes became “the father of the geological timescale,” the most decorated geologist to date.
