Rocking the county

Shropshire has some the most varied geology in the
world. A new exhibition at Shrewsbury Museum & Art
Gallery, Evolving Shropshire, invites you to experience
millions of years of the Shropshire landscape. Rocks
representing millions of years of time and fossils
indicating the many different environments Shropshire
has experienced, from vast deserts and swampy forests to
tropical seas and freezing Ice-Ages, are brought to life.

The exhibition also displays the recent work of the Fossils
in Shropshire project to digitise and improve public
access to the specimens held in the Shropshire Museums
collection. Evolving Shropshire was created in partnership
with the Fossils in Shropshire project and is open until
Sunday 31 May.

There are also events running over the Easter holidays,
including Drop-in Fossil Painting and interactive sessions
offering a chance to meet pioneering palaeontologist
Mary Anning… as well as Charles Darwin himself!
