Monthly meeting 2pm at Reigate Park Church

Friday 2 March  - William Smith's geological map

Robert Chandler's talk examines the impact that William Smith’s map of 1815 has had on the study of layered sedimentary rocks from 1815 to the present day.  The talk focuses on the use of fossils as geological clocks to make relative estimations of time. Before retirement Robert was a science teacher and now works as a researcher working on ammonites at the Natural History Museum.
