In this three-part online course, Hidden Horizons’ palaeontologist Dr Liam Herringshaw will introduce you to some of the amazing fossils that can be found on Yorkshire’s Dinosaur Coast. Liam will help you to identify the common (and world-famous) fossils found on the Yorkshire Coast. These range from the Jurassic ammonites of Whitby and the dinosaur footprints of Scarborough, to sponges in the Flamborough chalk and Ice Age bones in the Holderness cliffs.

The course is run in three parts. The first introduces the rocks of the Yorkshire Coast, and the early Jurassic fossils, including ammonites and marine reptiles. The next class explores the fossils of middle and late Jurassic age, including dinosaur footprints, fossil plants, sea snails and corals. The final class looks at fossils from the Chalk, such as sea urchins and belemnites, as well as Ice Age fossils, including mammal teeth.

Sent out to you as part of the course, our unique GeoEd replica set, not available to purchase separately, provides museum-quality representative examples of fossils that can be found in Yorkshire. Participants will also be sent a complimentary copy of our Dinosaur Coast guidebook. No previous experience of studying fossils is required, just enthusiasm!

Timetable: Classes start at 7pm (1900 GMT) on Tuesday evenings: January 26th, February 2nd, February 9th 2021. Each class lasts 45 minutes, followed by a 15-minute Q&A session.

Cost: £50 per person (including bespoke Yorkshire Coast fossil set and Dinosaur Coast book). Places on the course are strictly limited to 20.
