Fossil ID sessions are back

Posted on:

Dudley Museum at the Archives is running its popular fossil ID sessions once again.

People can bring along up to five fossils for identification. It’s a chance to discover more about your finds and learn a little more about geology, both local and international.

The next session is on Saturday 9 July from 11 – 3.

Councillor Simon Phipps, cabinet member for regeneration and enterprise, said:

The fossil ID sessions were always popular, but we had to put them on hold during covid. We’re really glad that we’re able to run them again.
It’s a great chance to learn more about the rocks and fossils in your possession, whether you picked them up on holiday or discovered them on your doorstep at Wren’s Nest Nature Reserve, it’s always interesting to find out more with our resident experts.

Places should be booked on Eventbrite via the Dudley Museum facebook page. Dudley Museum at the Archives is open every Thursday, Friday and Saturday from 10am-4pm. Parking and entry is free.
