Bring Your Fossils to Radstock Museum

Description

Local fossil experts and collectors, Simon Carpenter, and Richard Ashley will be joining Radstock Museum’s ‘Meet The Expert’ programme on Saturday 24th August 2019 from 11:30am until 2pm. to help identify any rocks, fossils or minerals you may have; so bring along your fossil treasures to find out what they are. 

Simon Carpenter, who has a few fossils named after him, including a large sea-going reptile, says, “I’ve been collecting fossils all my life and always keen to see what others have found. We are particularly lucky to be living in an area with such a rich geological history. Within a stones’ throw of Radstock we have rocks that cover almost 400 million years of Earth’s history. So, I would encourage you to come in and bring any rocks, fossils or minerals you have, that need a positive identification”. Simon will be bringing a selection of his own fossils to show all participants and there will be a number of fossils to give away. This event is linked with the Mendip Rocks Festival 2019
