  • London Drift

  • Mar 15, 2018 from 2:00pm to 7:00pm
  • Location: Meet at 11 Bedford Square, London for an afternoon's walking
  • Description:

    A creative walking workshop in Central London, exploring the sites of astonishing fossil discoveries: from extinct elephants and hippos in Trafalgar Square, to reindeer and bison in South Kensington. We will playfully uncover the vestiges of former Thames terrace deposits, laid down during successive cycles of warm and cold climate, which can still be detected beneath two millennia of urbanization, together with the stone tools of London’s Palaeolithic occupants, the last people to see these vanished species. Supported by the Humanities and Arts Research Institute at Royal Holloway, University of London.
