Thursdays from 12 May, 10.30am-12.30pm
Great North Museum: Hancock + Field Outings
The youngest rocks exposed in Northumbria date from the Triassic and Jurassic periods. These were times of dramatic environmental change which were famously dominated by the dinosaurs. Derek Teasdale will help you explore their geology through 4 indoor sessions and 3 full-day field trips. Note that exposures of these rocks only occur on and beyond the borders of Northumberland and Durham and the course will involve field-trips to Jedburgh including Hutton’s Unconformity, Penrith and the Vale of Eden and the coast south of Redcar.
Cost: £85 (Concessions: £69)
