GA Zoom talk/workshop on the Wealden (Smokejacks)
October 31 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm
The popular annual Wealden field trip will take the form of a Zoom talk/workshop. The workshop will start with a virtual tour of the Smokejacks clay pit, describing the geological contexts and environment in the Lower Cretaceous when these sediments were deposited.
We will then move on to look at some of the fossil finds that have been made there. Starting with the discovery of dinosaur Baryonyx in 1983 and run through some of the more important and unusual finds that have been made over the years since then.
This will be followed by an open discussion and an opportunity for identification of fossil finds by our experts Pete and Ed.
