Trace back to Jurassic world
IPSWICH'S world-class fossil sites and prehistoric life will be on show at Ipswich Central Library later this month.
The free Fascinating Fossils information session helps people learn about how fossils are formed and what they can reveal about the past.
In particular it will focus on the Ipswich area and the fossils of dinosaurs and plants found here.
Triassic plant fossils found at Dinmore have been dated to about 230 million years ago, meaning the earliest dinosaurs would have eaten them.
Dr Gilbert Price, a palaeontologist from the University of Queensland, will speak as part of the information session.
Dr Price's research interests include the largest-ever marsupial, diprotodon, which weighed as much as 2.7 tonnes.
One of the city's librarians will help participants find and access Ipswich Libraries' resources on fossils and make them aware of helpful websites.
The Fascinating Fossils session will be held from 10-11.30am in the Barry Jones Auditorium on August 26.
