Medical origins of the Geological Society
Dr Cherry Lewis - Bristol University
Tuesday 13th March - 7.30pm
Cherry Lewis' interests lie in the history of geology and she has published a popular science book on the history of dating the age of the Earth entitled: 'The Dating Game: One Man's Search for the Age of the Earth'. Cherry’s talk will cover the origins of the Geological Society of London, which was founded on 13 November 1807 – the oldest such society in the world. Founding members include James Parkinson (1755-1824) who gave his name to Parkinson's Disease.
