Two prehistoric Dragonfly fossils, with wingspans over 50 centimetres, were found in the 'Deep Hard' coal seam in Bolsover Colliery in 1978 by Malcolm Spenser. These rare exhibits will be coming back to Creswell on display beginning this spring www.creswell-crags.org.uk/Whats-On/special-exhibitions.aspx. Usually in the Natural History Museum London, these Erasipteron Bolsoveri/Whalleyala bolsoveri fossils are rarely seen outside the capital.
Come and find out more about these Carboniferous Period finds and Creswell Crags itself in this fascinating talk by Helen who works at the Museum and visitor Centre on April 23rd starting at 19.30.
The talk is at Oldcotes Village Hall on the A634 Maltby Road. Entrance is £3 for non-members or £2 for members.
