Deep Time at the Science Festival – 5, 6, 7 April

Holyrood Park image - Deep Time WalkThe Edinburgh Geological Society is delighted to be contributing to this year’s Science Festival with a unique event in Holyrood Park, exploring deep time, in association with the team behind the award-winning Deep Time Walk mobile app. Join us to walk 4.6 km, 1 metre for every million years of Earth history, guided and entertained by two characters – a scientist and a fool – in philosophical conversation about life, evolution and our place in the world.
