Talk – Fossils of the Araripe Basin, Brazil – Repeated

Bob Loveridge kindly agreed to repeat his talk given to us on 18th December, as a few people missed it, and we did not complete our examination of the fossils. So on 20th January 2022 at the Radnorshire Museum, we listened to the talk, and had a marvelous time looking at and handling the fossils. Bob also showed us how to prepare the fossils by scraping them under a microscope. We were all amazed to see how the plants and animals are so close in appearance to their present-day counterparts, BUT are approximately 110 million years old!

Many thanks to Bob for his fascinating talk and guidance.
