The drama of deep time: Joggins Fossil CliffsClick for this Resource!
A UNESCO World Heritage site, Joggins Fossil Cliffs is famous for fossils that bridge the time when our ancestors were moving out of the seas and onto land.
And what a land! Vast forests of the ancestors of ferns and horsetails. Tree sized relatives of mosses. And as you walk the beach you can hold these ancient plants in your hand, stone after stone. It was thrilling! And, as ever, profoundly moving to feel embedded in the deepest of time.
