Ancient Seas of the Yorkshire Coast

Ancient Seas of the Yorkshire Coast

Details

The Rotunda’s new exhibition will dive into Yorkshire’s ancient seas and bring visitors face to face with a range of prehistoric creatures. The display will cover almost 360 million years of history; from the Carboniferous period until the end of the last Ice Age 11,700 years ago.

Come along to learn about how our landscape has developed over millions of years and which wonderful creatures once called Yorkshire home through our fascinating collection of fossils and specially commissioned reconstructions of what marine life was like millions of years ago. How were the cliffs at Flamborough formed? What terrifying creatures once hunted their prey in Yorkshire waters? How long ago did rhinoceros, hippopotamus and hyenas roam Yorkshire soil?

All of this and more can be discovered in Ancient Seas of the Yorkshire Coast. A Story Through Time from Whitby to Flamborough Head.
