The wide range of rock types used for gravestones means that cemeteries can be geological treasure-troves. Join geologists Nina Morgan and Philip Powell on guided geological walks through three burial grounds in Oxford. You'll never look at cemeteries in the same way again!
The walks form part of British Science Week, 10 –19 March 2017. For other science events in Oxford see: https://www.britishscienceweek.org/search-for-events
These Oxford burial grounds are all featured in The Geology of Oxford Gravestones by Nina Morgan and Philip Powell. Copies of the book, costing £14.99, will be available to examine and buy after each walk.
Please note: These walks are not suitable for those with walking difficulties, nor for children in buggies. Uneven ground, so participants should wear comfortable walking shoes or trainers.
