As part of the Festival of Nature, which takes place until 25 June across the Bath and Bristol region, families across the region are invited to join experts from Milner Centre for Evolution at the University of Bath and BRLSI for Festival of Nature’s first ever Jurassic Road Show and ask ‘What’s My Fossil?’.
Visitors of all ages can bring along their favourite fossils to the Bath Festival of Nature in Parade Gardens, from 11am to 6pm on Sunday, June 25th. Whether it has been found on the beach or bought as a gift, the experts will attempt to identify them, say interesting things about them and place them on a timeline stretching back millions of years across time.
There will also be plenty of showcase fossils on-site to explore, including beautiful fossil ferns found in Radstock, Mosasaur teeth and specimens from a favourite Bath venue, Bath Royal Literary and Scientific Institution.
The Festival of Nature takes place from 8-25 June to celebrate the River Avon through the perspective of the communities and wildlife that make the river their home. A number of events are taking place throughout the festival where local and national organisations will provide a showcase of activities to encourage visitors to discover the natural work on their doorstep.
