GET FOSSILLING WITH DINOSAUR ISLE THIS SUMMER

Islanders and visitors alike are being offered the opportunity to join one of Dinosaur Isle Museum’s guided fossil walks this summer.

The popular attraction is running a number of guided walks throughout the summer at sites of known palaeontological and geological interest on the Island.

The 2 hour sessions take place at a number of locations such as Yaverland, Shanklin, Brook and Culver and run until 3rd September 2018. Typical finds vary between the sites, but fossil shellfish, sponges are usually found along with dinosaur bones and even poo.

Dr Martin Munt, curator at Dinosaur Isle Museum says:

“The Isle of Wight is a great destination for dinosaur activities, with fossils of at least 25 different species found here, from calamosaurus – a type of predator that roamed the Island 125 million years ago – to the meat eating Neovenator that roamed the Island in the early Cretaceous period, 130 million years ago”.

Booking is essential for these popular walks so contact Dinosaur Isle on 01983 404344 to reserve a place or visit www.dinosaurisle.com/events.aspx for more information.
