Library exhibition – William Smith’s fossils

A new exhibition marking the 250th anniversary of the birth of William Smith, 'The Father of English Geology', is now on display at Burlington House. The Natural Order of the Strata includes 42 of William Smith's own fossils, on loan from the Natural History Museum, which he used to identify the strata of England and Wales. 

The exhibition can be viewed in the Lower Library and Lyell Room at the Geological Society, Burlington House, London until the end of April.
