About the walk

From dinosaur bones and mammoth tusks, to coprolites (real dinosaur dung) and amber, to skeletons of the now extinct animals, to impressions left on stones and in resinsfossils tell us a great deal about animals that we can no longer encounter and the world that they inhabited.

Let’s go back in time and discover the stories that fossils reveal about plants and animals of the past, and appreciate the work of museum palaeontologists.
