Evolving Shropshire

Special Exhibitions Gallery Shropshire has some of the most varied geology in the world, with rocks representing millions of years of time and fossils indicating the many different environments that Shropshire has experienced, from vast deserts and swampy forests to tropical seas and freezing Ice-Ages. Evolving Shropshire tells the story of the collections, collectors, evolution and discoveries associated with the diverse geology of the county and the recent work of the Fossils in Shropshire Project to digitise and improve public access to the specimens held in the Shropshire Museums collection.
