Palaeontologist and writer Dr Elsa Panciroli explores some of the incredible tales from her book, The Earth: A Biography of Life, as told by the rocks, plants, and animals that have shaped our world.
With a history that stretches back 4.6 billion years, telling the story of our planet is no easy feat. Dr Elsa Panciroli's latest book, The Earth: A Biography of Life, was the original inspiration for the Connected Planet exhibition. In it, she discusses some of the most fascinating organisms that have shaped our world. From ancient fungi as tall as houses to space-faring flies, her upcoming talk will reveal some of the most incredible organisms to have shaped scientific knowledge, and highlight the surprising connections between them. Discover how even the smallest organisms have a fundamental impact on climate, soils, and the pattern of life itself.

Suitable for adults and young people aged 13+.

Talk begins at 18:00, doors open from 17:30.

The talk is free, but booking is recommended.
