A monstrous time! Life and death in the Permian


Science show

Travel back in time with us to the Permian period, 290 million years ago! To a time of one giant supercontinent, with extremes of temperature between night and day – a time that ended with the greatest mass extinction ever to have happened on Earth. What caused the extinction and how did it impact the direction that life took afterwards?

11am and 2pm, weekends and holidays from Saturday 30 September
