My ’22 Top Ten – 7. Creatures of Curiosity

Last modified date

I don’t really need to re-write the post I put up in August, but one of my highlights of the summer was being palaeontological consultant and fossil roadshow host for Rosie Barrett‘s Creatures of Curiosity exhibition at Nunnington Hall. Rosie tells me that more than 20,500 people visited the exhibition.

I made a video, which is rubbish, but gives you a flavour of what I was up to.

I particularly enjoyed the children of Appleton Roebuck Primary School making me some fabulous hyaena cave puppets. I can only apologize that I haven’t used them to make the Crunchin’ Judy puppet show as promised. Maybe in 2023…
