Scotland’s Time Lords

Fri October 10, 2014 @ 14:0015:00

Online tickets have now ended, however, tickets will still be available on the door or by calling Gorebridge Library on 01875 820630

The earth is 4600 million years old!  How big does your calculator need to be to work that out?!  Over 200 years ago in Scotland, James Hutton found a piece of the puzzle.  100 years later Arthur Holmes did the maths. They are Scotland’s ‘time lords’.   But what does that have to do with meteorites and radioactive bananas?  Come and make a crafty ‘Earth-Clock’ to show what has changed. Can you fit the extinction of the dinosaurs (65 million years ago) and the evolution of humans (2 million years ago) onto it?

This event is free but ticketed.  Tickets can be obtained here or via the URL in the ticket section below.

Please note that this venue is wheelchair accessible but does not have wheelchair accessible toilets.
