Dinosaurs and Ichthyosaurs of Britain - ASP Christmas Lecture

With Jurassic World 2 currently set to be released next year palaeontologist and fossil detective Dean Lomax takes us on a journey back to the amazing British finds that sparked the original dinomania in the 1800s. From the 'invention' of dinosaurs to the great granddad of T. rex, he reveals British dinosaur and ichthyosaur discoveries, including recent identification of new species and some incredibly rare finds.

Dean Lomax is an internationally recognised multi-award-winning palaeontologist, science communicator and author. He has travelled the globe and worked on many fascinating projects from excavating dinosaurs in the American West, to describing new species of extinct marine reptiles and winning a gold medal for excellence in science. A visiting scientist at The University of Manchester, Dean is passionate about communicating palaeontology with the public and regularly appears on television, including as series advisor and recurring on-screen expert presenter for ITV’s Dinosaur Britain. He has written two books, numerous scientific papers, and many popular articles. Dean is also the patron of the UK Association of Fossil Hunters (UKAFH).

Horizon Lectures: Julie Summers

"Mallory and Irvine’s attempt on the summit of Everest in 1924 is one of the most compelling stories in mountaineering history.  Last seen on the upper slopes and “going strongly for the top”, the mystery surrounding the pair has never been resolved.  While the story behind Mallory’s journey to Everest has been widely told, the remarkable life of Sandy Irvine has often stayed in the shadows.

Author and historian Julie Summers, the great-niece of Sandy Irvine, is well-known for her ability to bring stories from the past to life.  With unique access to Sandy’s letters and photographs Julie explores his life and tells the extraordinary story of how, at the age of only 22, he came to accompany Mallory as they set out for the top of the world."

Tickets are available on the Horizon Lectures website.

Horizon Lectures: John Blashford-Snell

"Colonel John Blashford-Snell is one of the world’s most renowned and influential explorers.  Often cited as an inspiration by the likes of Ranulph Fiennes and Bear Grylls, he has spent decades at the forefront of British expeditions. John’s achievements include the first descent of the Blue Nile in Ethiopia, an arduous crossing of the Darien Gap and the first navigation along the full length of the Congo River.

Heralded by the Telegraph as “the last of the great adventurers” John’s talk is a chance to hear his daring exploits first hand – from deserts and mountains, to wildlife and people."
