Neler yapacaksınız

Easy walk on the streets of central Edinburgh to find fossils in the building stones and pavements. Discover fish, ammonoids, plants and other fossilised critters and find out more about 'deep time' and the history of life on Earth as recorded in the rocks. Looking at buildings and the historic landscape of Edinburgh also leads on to stories about the social and cultural history of the city.

I hold a Ph. D. in Palaeobiology (the study of ecology and evolution in deep time) and am a Chartered Geologist. During my research career I carried out research in the Smithsonian Institute Museum of Natural History, The Natural History Museum, London and The Natural History Museum, Berlin. I have run geological walks for a wide range of groups in various places in Scotland since going freelance in 2014. I also work as an outdoor leader and first-aid provider.

Nerede olacaksınız?

The Pavement Palaeontology tour offers the chance to find fossils in places around central Edinburgh. The sites themselves are all in public places but what Al offers is the ability to spot and interpret the fossils and examine them with magnifiers with a qualified palaeontologist.

Interesting, well-thought out walking tour highlighting the geology of Edinburgh. We learned about history (wooden water pipes from the 1600s!), building practices, the Flodden Wall, as well as the ancient fossils captured in the city's pavements and building stones. Highly recommended.

What a great experience! An excellent way to explore the city in a different way! I have been to Edinburgh on numerous occasions and was looking for something new. This walk was perfect because I saw things I had never noticed before. I would highly recommend the experience. Alistair is so knowledgeable about everything he showed us and very welcoming.

This is was really unique tour! You become so much more aware of the built environment around you. Fascinating to find fossils from millions of years ago right under your feet. Highly recommend this experience.

We learned about Alistair's Pavement Paleontology via a flyer at Mr. Wood's Fossils and immediately contacted him. He went out of his way to connect with us and to arrange a time to meet during a busy holiday season. He was personable from the start and conveyed great information you couldn't otherwise get from ordinary Edinburgh tours or guidebooks. He also provided contact info to field any future questions we might have or to provide links to other geological experts in the area. A great morning in all! Thank you, Al!

Great walk. You can do a history tour, a literary tour or a themed whatever tour in most cities and they are often great. But this tour of Edinburgh is something unique. You won’t regret it.
