Whitby Bookshop and Whitby Museum present Fossil Day at the Whitby Bookshop, 31st July 2019, 11am - 4pm

A fabulous fossil opportunity for all ages at the Whitby Bookshop! Come and meet Roger Osborne, Curator of Geology at Whitby Museum, who’ll be bringing some of his top fossil favourites into the shop. Get up close and personal with an Allosaurus, marvel at the might of T-Rex, and get top fossil-hunting and ID tips from Whitby museum’s expert in all things Triassic, Jurassic and Cretaceous.

The Whitby Bookshop will be hosting Roger for a day of fabulous fossil exploration for all ages at Whitby Bookshop on 31st July. We’ll have favourite items from the Museum’s Jurassic collection, as well as some common beach finds to give you inspiration for your summer holiday beach-combing adventures on our beautiful heritage coast. Bring your own fossil-finds for identification, pick up one of our signed copies of local fossil guides and get advice on where the best places are to hunt for your own prehistoric treasures.
