Stones & Bones


Monday, 16 March to Sunday, 22 March 2015


Library of Birmingham, B1 2ND



Visit the Stones & Bones exhibition and take a trip through time!

At different times the Midlands was like the Mississippi delta, the Bahamas and the Sahara desert. More recently, the area was a cold glacial landscape with mammoths and woolly rhinos, separated by warmer periods when hippos and lions roamed the area.

Come and discover more about the early history of the Midlands and how that history was uncovered, recorded and told by prominent local geologists and scientists. The exhibition explores what impact these discoveries had on the region, culturally and industrially and what these investigations can tell us about our world today.

Stones & Bones is an exciting collaboration between Library of Birmingham and the Lapworth Museum of Geology at the University of Birmingham.

Presented by The Lapworth Museum of Geology in partnership with Library of Birmingham
