Almost 2000 years having elapsed since the founding of Eboracum, York has plenty of history. Its streets, however, take us much further back in time, thanks to the variety of geological materials they contain. From Jurassic oysters to Precambrian ocean crust, via Cornish granite and Cumbrian volcanoes, they help us uncover more than 2 billion years of Earth history. Dr Liam Herringshaw will explain more in his Cafe Scientifique talk, and draw up a deep-time timeline of York in the process.
We are meeting in a new venue in the Council Chamber at the Guildhall. Tea/coffee available from 7pm. Talk and Q and A 7.15pm to 8.15pm
