Pics from Geological Society meeting

Here are a few pictures taken by Caroline Lam, archivist at the Geological Society of London , at the talk I gave on Thursday evening at Burlington House about Thomas Atkinson and his geological adventures in Siberia.

Pupils from London’s  first Russian-English Bilingual School, AZBUKA, attended the meeting and demonstrated the Russian art of tea-drinking, bringing along with them many typical Russian dishes.

Also on display were some wonderful documents, books, prints and artworks from the Geological Society archive. Thanks to everyone who made this such a successful (and sell-out) event.
