A stroll round Rouken Glen Park led by John Faithfull, looking at the varied rocks formed in Carboniferous times. These rocks, and the fossils they contain, let us reconstruct changing environments 325 million years ago, and were also an important part of the industrial revolution in Glasgow during the 19th century.
