In association with Science Oxford
From 12 to 22 October 2018

Science in a cemetery (St Mary and St John Churchyard)

Venue: St Mary and St John Churchyard, Cowely Road, Oxford, OX4 1QT

The wide range of rock types used for gravestones means that cemeteries can be geological treasure-troves. They are also great places to study local history and environmental science. Join geologists Nina Morgan and Philip Powell on a guided geological cemetery walk. Their book The Geology of Oxford Gravestones will be available to buy.

Be prepared to walk on rough ground so please wear comfortable walking shoes. This event may not be suitable for wheelchair users.

This event is free to attend, though donations to IF Oxford are welcomed.
