With Palaeontologist Steve Etches MBE
Amateur palaeontologist Steve Etches has spent more than 30 years creating the finest single collection of Late Jurassic era fossils ever assembled in Britain, many of which are new to science and are of great palaeontological importance. This extraordinary collection of more than 2,200 fossils includes the world’s best examples of fossilised ammonite eggs, a two-metre-long Pliosaur jaw, a Pterosaur skull, and an Icthyosaur with its belly still full of fish and squid.
Our Kimmeridgian Jurassic experience will begin with a buffet lunch provided by Clavells Café, followed by a fascinating talk from Steve Etches on the most important specimens in his collection. This will provide a unique and exciting insight into the lives of many Late Jurassic marine creatures. The £15 cost per person includes talk, buffet lunch and museum entry (transport not included). Please sign up at one of our meetings or contact us so we can confirm numbers for lunch and help coordinate transport arrangements.
