Ice Age Ilford: An exhibition
Till Saturday 4 June 2016  This major exhibition brings to life the lost world of the mammoths.  Over 200,000 years ago, Ilford was home to mammoths, rhinoceros, giant deer, wild cattle and even lions.  Hundreds of their fossilised bones were unearthed in Ilford 150 years ago and are now in the collections of the Natural History Museum and the British Geological Survey.  In this special exhibition some of these prehistoric bones are returning home for a brief visit.  Come and explore Ilford’s Ice Age, find out why animals became extinct and learn about the Victorian fossil hunters who made these astonishing discoveries.  Visitors will also come face -to-face with a life-size replica of the skull of an Ilford mammoth.
Open Tuesday – Friday 10-5 Sat 10-4. FREE
Please bear in mind that these events have not been organized by Rockwatch and you need to get in touch with the group involved to find out more details and to book.
