NKU Scotland



Through the study of rocks and fossils, we now understand some of the fascinating history of our planet and the life upon it – but until surprisingly recently, this was not the case. The first geologists & paleontologists learned how to decipher our story in England & Scotland. Explore one of the greatest natural history museums in the world in London, then visit the home of Charles Darwin and dig for fossils along the Jurassic coast. Next, we will venture northwards and enjoy more castles, culture, and cuisine, and explore the mountainous and mysterious Scottish Highlands.
