- Upcoming Excursion and Lecture -

Excursion
Marino Rocks: highlights of a world-renowned geological section

Date: Sunday May 26th
Leaders: Frances Williams, Steve Elsby, Dianne Radomski
On this excursion you will be able to sit on the nose of an anticline, see evidence in the rocks of 650 million year old tidal cycles, stand on a fault with your feet 650 million years apart – and much more as we explore this spectacular and geologically renowned section of coastline.

Lecture
How ancient fishes built the human body plan- exciting fossil discoveries from Australia and Antarctica  by  Professor John Long

Date: Thursday 6th June 2019

Ralph Tate Memorial Lecture 

New specimens of Devonian fish fossils have been studied in 3D by high tech X-ray tomography.  These early fishes, thought to be very primitive, actually had a very advanced structure. Rather than being an evolutionary ‘dead-end’, they gave us the basic framework for our human body plan.
