The Palaeontological Association

The Palaeontological Association promotes the study of palaeontology and its allied sciences through publication of original research and field guides, sponsorship of meetings and field excursions, provision of web resources, outreach and educational activities and a program of annual awards.

Our Jurassic diorama will allow people to get hands-on with life in the seas 200 million years ago.  Try to become a fossil with our ‘Fossilisation Frenzy’ game, and make your own mould fossil or miniature dinosaur footprint in salt dough to take home.

Palaeoartist James McKay will create stunning paintings of people’s imaginary prehistoric creatures or favourite fossils.
