Deep Time Walk

Thursday 5, Friday 6 and Saturday 7 April

Join a live performance of the Deep Time Walk – a 4.6km walk through Edinburgh's Holyrood Park, travelling across Earth's 4.6-billion-year geological timeline at a rate of 1 million years per metre. The walk starts at the accretion of the Earth and goes on to cover some of the significant events in Earth’s history, including the formation of the moon, plate tectonics, the early evolution of life, The Great Oxidation, mass extinctions, dinosaurs and much more – including the arrival of modern humans during the last few centimetres.

Moderate fitness, outdoor clothing and sturdy footwear required.

Presented by Edinburgh Geological Society
