RAMM’s Geology collection consists of over 40,000 fossils, rocks and minerals. They are evidence of vital changes that Devon’s landscape has seen over the past 490 million years. The 4.5 million years old meteorite is a relic of the early days of our planet. Ichthyosaur skeletons represent a time when large reptiles dominated the oceans and dinosaurs ruled the land. Mammoth tusks are remains of the latest Ice Age during which most of today’s landscape features developed.
Due the sheer size of the collection it is not possible to display it all at once. If you wish to view a stored collection for research purposes please contact the Curator of Natural History via the enquiries page. A selection of displayed and stored items can also be viewed on RAMM’s online Collections Explorer.
