The Palaentology Group is embarking on its second year. We decided that there was much material in the 'Great Courses' DVD we have been following, that would benefit from a second viewing. Sadly one of our members has had to drop out for an on-going medical problem, so we would welcome some new recruits (max 4).
We meet in Llanfaelog on alternate Monday afternoons from 2-30pm. We watch a 30 minute lecture followed by a cup of tea or coffee and a discussion. The lectures are based on the Smithsonian Institute but given by a British Palaentologist. He starts with the origins of the formation of the planet, how water, oxygen and metals formed and on through the millennia, tracing the rise of sea life, the splitting of the ancient continental mass into modern recognisable land masses, plate tectonics, and how this has affected the distribution of flora and fauna. The various ways fossils are formed and under what conditions and the five major exterminations the Earth suffered – all before early man evolved and spread around the globe!
This study covers so many different scientific disciplines: physics, chemistry, crystallography, geology, anthropology - there is something to intrigue most people.
Why not give it a try?
