Age of Extinctions

THIS EVENT HAS BEEN CANCELLED

Think it was just the dinosaurs that suffered? Come along to explore some of Earth’s fiercest and forgotten mass extinction events.


Long before the mass extinction of the dinosaurs, in a catastrophic period spanning 80 million years, extinction after extinction swept the Earth. ‘The Great Dying’ was the most famous of these, wiping out nearly all life on the planet. But what made this relatively short period so disastrous for life?

Join Professor Paul Wignall in a detective story involving all life on Earth, exploring his research into giant volcanism, dangerous gases and global geography.
