Field Trip

No trip to Yorkshire would be complete without a fossil hunting trip to the coast around Whitby. Unfortunately, high tide on the Saturday following the symposium is mid-afternoon. So, instead we are proposing to run two field trips:

The first trip will be on the Monday preceding the symposium (1st Sept). This will be to Saltwick Bay and will be run by Dean Lomax, author of Fossils of the Whitby Coast and assistant curator of palaeontology at the Doncaster Museum & Art Gallery.

The second trip will be in the more traditional slot on Saturday 6th Sept. This will be to see a disused Alum Quarries, the Whitby Museum and the Rotunda Museum in Scarborough, and is being organised by Will Watts, formerly of Scarborough Museums Trust. Delegates may also be interested to know that the Scarborough Museums Trust will be holding a fossil festival on the weekend of 13th and 14th September.
