Travel to Experience Archaeology and Palaeontology
Good conservation is based on a sound understanding of what we’re protecting.
Archaeology and palaeontology give us fascinating insight into life in all its forms. Fossils provide evidence of evolution and archaeological artefacts tell us what life was like at different stages in that evolution. They provide clues to lost civilisations such as Greenland’s Vikings and living societies alike.
The cool North of Finland, Greenland, Iceland, Scotland, Ireland, Norway, Sweden and the Faroe Islands offers a wealth of archaeological and paleontological interest. From the Rödsten of Sweden to the petroglyphs of Finland and the Jurassic ammonites of Scotland, this is one huge field trip! Search for dinosaur prints on the Scottish Island of Skye, see craftspeople work with traditional Viking methods in Trondheim or land at Segelsällskapets Fjord to experience the folded brown and white dolomite layers.
“History may be accurate, but archaeology is precise.”
Introducing Archaeology and Paleontology
Archaeology is the study of artefacts and other physical evidence left by past societies of humans and closely related to species. It uses scientific analysis of field samples to inform historical understanding.
Palaeontology is the study of prehistoric species, mostly ones that are extinct. It focuses primarily on fossil data, using a variety of physical, chemical and biological techniques to analyse them.
