Creswell Crags - a hidden gem
- Quaker Meeting House |

- Wednesday, 20 July 2016 - 19:00 until 21:00
Situated on the Nottinghamshire/Derbyshire boundary, Creswell Crags is a limestone gorge honeycombed with caves and rock shelters. During early excavations in the Victorian period these caves revealed their secrets: animal remains dating back 120,000 years and perhaps more notably evidence of human occupation in the gorge dating back to the last Ice Age. Find out more about these remains and what they tell us and more about Britain's only Ice Age art.
This lecture, by Maria Smith could be coupled with a preview the visit to Creswell Crags in September 2016
This event has been organised by the South Yorkshire Volunteer Fundraising Committee to help raise money for the Art Fund.
