Morecambe Bay Sunset Series: Discovering Our Urban Wildlife

Join Amy Hopley of Morecambe Bay Partnership as she discovers the wild side of Morecambe Bay's towns and cities

When we think of nature, we often think of the countryside - rolling hills, rocky shores and all the wild places in between. But it's easy to overlook the wildlife that lives alongside us in our towns and cities.

In this talk, Amy will introduce you to some of the fascinating species that have adapted to urban life, how they came to live an urban lifestyle, and what we can do to connect with our non-human neighbours.

Morecambe Bay Sunset Series: Forests, Footprints and Fauna

Follow in the footsteps of the Bay's ancient inhabitants with Dr Alison Burns, expert on prehistoric footprints.

Morecambe Bay's ever shifting sands regularly expose ancient land surfaces where prehistoric communities hunted thousands of years ago.

A prehistoric woodland landscape is revealed by fallen tree stumps embedded in the clays and its use by Stone Age hunter-gatherers is preserved as animal remains and footprints.

The land surfaces and features are exposed through tidal processes and storms, sometimes only for a matter of hours before the next tide removes all evidence.

Morecambe Bay Sunset Series: Warton Crag: An Iron Age Hill Fort - or is it?

Join Kevin Grice for his fascinating reinterpretation of Warton Crag 'Iron Age hill fort'.

Kevin will discuss recent research on the Iron Age hill fort on Warton Crag. He will explore both the antiquarian and twentieth-century documentary sources and evaluate the results of recent LiDAR imaging.

He will contrast the different views on the possible date and function of the monument including modern re-interpretations.

Kevin will consider whether its dating may be more complex than previously thought and he will set out an alternative hypothesis and suggest further investigations.
