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.

In this talk we will explore the remains that have been found and how you can help us to understand this important evidence before it is washed away forever.
