The Earth- An Intimate History. Professor Richard Fortey

Palaeontologist Richard Fortey from the Natural History Museum, London, will discuss how rocks have shaped the world.

Palaeontologist Professor Richard Fortey studies trilobites and other fossils at the Natural History Museum, London. He is one of Britain’s leading popular scientists and has won numerous awards for his books, including ‘Trilobite!’ and his latest addition, ‘The Earth: An Intimate History’.

Geology underlies almost everything about us: human culture, natural history, even the shape of cities. By talking about particular places of geological interest and by exploring their history in an intimate way, Fortey will show us that far from being a dry science, geology informs all our lives and directs the very foundations of our world.
