No, we don’t make it up! Bob Nicholls Palaoe-artist

Current palaeo-reconstruction explained from the inside-out.

Our species has attempted to reconstruct the life appearance of prehistoric animals from fossils for thousands of years.  During that time, the interpretations have changed considerably as our knowledge and technologies have progressed.  About 200 years ago Baron Georges Cuvier attempted the first anatomically complete reconstructions of extinct animals, and the art of science based palaeo-reconstruction was born.  In this talk, professional palaeoartist Bob Nicholls will illustrate how far palaeo-reconstruction has progressed by talking us through the current process, from a fossil to a completed life-size model with accurate colour patterns.

8pm 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.
