Deep History in Amherst with Richard Little

Saturday, November 4 at 4:00 PM
Space is limited, registration required
Sliding scale tickets available

Prof. Richard Little will illustrate how the birth and death of Pangea led to the “Valley of the Dinosaurs” and the formation of rare armored mud balls.  Closer to the present day, Amherst and surroundings were profoundly influenced by glaciers and Lake Hitchcock.  Was Amherst under cold, muddy lake water?  Come to the program to discover the answer to this and other mysteries hidden in rocks and landscapes.  Prof. Little will bring samples and you can bring one or two of yours for identification.  His two books as well as armored mud ball hats and T shirts will be available for purchase.  Please see his web site for more information.
