Festival of Geology

Saturday 7th November 2020

The Festival of Geology organised by the Geologists’ Association had to be held online this year because of the COVID-19 epidemic and included a section for Local Groups and Societies Stalls where the Quekett and many other organisations displayed information about themselves. Pam Hamer prepared this presentation about the geological activities of Quekett members.

There was also a Rockwatch Challenge which involved a visit to the Quekett website to find the answer to one of the questions in the caption of this photomicrograph by David Linstead:
