Fossils of the Jurassic Coast: Walk Back Through Time with Sam Scriven
Sun 19 February 2017, 11:00 – 12:30 GMT
Chat, book signing and 'Guess the Find' from the expert.
Come and meet author Sam Scriven for a Sunday morning chat about all things ancient, along the Jurassic Coast. With a chance to get your fossils identified.
Sam grew up only a few miles away from the Jurassic Coast and it is where he developed his interest in geology and fossils. After gaining a Masters in Geology from the University of Plymouth, he worked as assistant warden and geologist at the Charmouth Heritage Coast Centre for four years. The experience he gained there in geological interpretation led him on to the position of Earth Science Adviser for the Jurassic Coast.
He has always been determined to work in geological conservation and interpretation and feels privileged to be able to work along the coastline that he loves and that inspired him to study geology in the first place.
Outside work, Sam plays the piano, reads and goes for the occasional long walk. He is also a self-confessed sci-fi nerd and spends too much time on his Xbox One.
