Course Description:
Through the study of rocks and fossils, we now understand some of the fascinating history of our planet and the life upon it – but until surprisingly recently, this was not the case. The first geologists & paleontologists learned how to decipher our story in England & Scotland in the 18th and 19th centuries. Explore one of the greatest natural history museums in the world in London, then visit the home of Charles Darwin and dig for fossils along the Jurassic coast. Next, we’ll venture northwards to explore more sites central to the history of geology in picturesque Edinburgh and the rugged Scottish Highlands.
