199 years of Plesiosaur discovery. Richard Forrest

199 years of Plesiosaur discovery. Richard Forrest

In 1819 Lyme Regis provided the earliest recorded finds of plesiosaurs from anywhere in the world. These incredible discoveries had a huge impact not only in scientific circles, but on the general public as well. New specimens have been found on the Dorset coast throughout the past two centuries and are still being found today. Research into these weird and wonderful marine reptiles has become a hot topic in scientific circles, and this talk sets out our current understanding of their biology, behaviour and relationships.

6pm Friday 4th May at The Masonic Hall, Lyme Regis.

Tickets £3 for each talk or £10 for the whole evening.  Available on the door or in advance from Lyme Regis Development Trust on 01297 445021 or from the information desk on Cobb Gate Car Park.
