The OpenArchive website no longer exists so I have put all our project reports on this site. You can access them through the WAG projects line in the panel to the left.
We had a great trip to the Lapworth Museum of Geology. Jon Clatworthy (Director) gave us a fantastic tour for which we are most grateful.

At least you meet their dinosaur when you enter (unlike the British Museum!)

Here is a good time line which puts things into perspective.

There are some lovely small precambrian creatures, unfortunately now extinct.

Some lovely larger creatures having lunch!
