One woman's quest for geological understanding!

Richard A. Fortey speaking @ the Herdman Symposium @ Liverpool University on the 19th February

The Herdman Symposium is an event that I have attended but once, and have awaited the 2011 Symposium with excitement.  This has now escalated as Richard A. Fortey will be speaking at the Symposium this year, and he is one of my favourite Geological authors!  He will be speaking on “Patterns in the History of Life”!
