Jurassic Coast Annual Seminar 2011 - A tale of four Tims
13th 2011 marked the 10th Anniversary since the Dorset and East Devon Coast was
made a World Heritage Site by the World Heritage Committee in Helsinki.
Of course, in the context of 185 million
years of the Earth's history, a mere 10 years as a World Heritage Site is a
paltry amount, but in human terms, it's quite a big chunk of time.
A new book that takes a quirky look at the Jurassic Coast has been published in time for Christmas – and it’s already proving to be a big hit. The Jurassic Coast – A Mighty Tale is published by The Jurassic Coast Trust and is written and illustrated by local artist Tim Britton.
Are you a Primary Teacher and need more help to effectively teach Rocks, Fossils and Evolution in your science curriculum? Then come and join us for a FREE training day led by Primary education consultant David Weatherly. Our special Big Jurassic Classroom Superteachers will also be on hand to take you through their own resources they have developed for the new Primary Science curriculum.
This two hour session starts up at the Centre with a 20 minute talk from the Centre Warden about the fossils of Charmouth and how to find fossils on the beach. The group then heads out onto the beach with the wardens and spend the rest of the session looking for fossils.
This is an informative weekend of lectures and guided walks introducing the science of geology and palaeontology using Charmouth as a case study. This weekend is aimed at adults who have an interest in fossils and geology.
