Read on to find out how Museum scientists have provided evidence about the early human occupants of the British Isles, provenance materials used in ancient pottery and provided forensic evidence for drowning and murder. A brief review of other chapters in the book underlines the importance of the study of micropalaeontology.
Our first ever series of #NHM_Live was broadcast earlier in the year on our Facebook page. We’ll be starting our second series of broadcasts in June so, before we get going, here’s a look back at the 4 episodes of series 1.
During the first broadcast we explored the weird and wonderful world of squid, octopus and cuttlefish with Alastair Hendry and our Curator of Mollusca, Jon Ablett.
N.B. this broadcast featured the dissection of a squid. If you think this could upset you, skip the segment in the recording that occurs between 12 mins 45s and 17 mins 45s.
