Wednesday 8 May, 10.30am-12.30pm

In anticipation of Dippy the Dinosaur visiting the Museum later in the month the Great North Museum: Hancock Library will be providing a display of items on the theme of extinction. These will include a number of beautifully illustrated books from the collection of the Natural History Society of Northumbria, and also items from their equally fascinating archive.
