Remarkable Fossils: From Egg Yolk to Dinosaur Dung - Professor Dave Martill

Saturday, 23 March 2019 - 11:00am

A majority of fossils are the remains of hard parts or organisms, fossil wood, fossil bones and teeth, fossils shells. But sometimes the softer bits of plants and animals are preserved, and in remarkable detail. Such fossils are rare, but provide an incredible amount of information about the biology, physiology and ecology of long extinct plants and animals. This talk examines some of the more remarkable, and unlikely things that have been found in the fossil record from egg yolk, to dinosaur pooh, and much more in between.
