Celebrate the South West – HOGG Event

September 18, 2018 - September 19, 2018

Celebrate the South West
18-19 September, at the Bath Royal Literary and Scientific Institution, Bath

From Roman Baths to building stones, fossil finds to mineral mines, amateur, professional and academic geologists and collectors have played key roles in unravelling the fascinating geology and resources of the SW of Britain. Many of their names and achievements are now forgotten.
A meeting about Collectors, Collections and the Geology of South West Britain, jointly organised by the History of Geology Group (HoGG) and the Geological Curators Group (GCG) aims to set this omission right. The meeting will include a day of talks and posters followed by a day of optional field trips, with plenty of activities to choose from.

Registration is now open. (£15 for members of HoGG, GCG, BRLSI and the Bath Geological Society; £19 for others)

Whether you’re a professional, academic, or amateur geologist – or simply someone interested in the geological and industrial history of the South West – you’re sure to find something of interest here.
