The Ancestor's Trail 2011 in the UK

Date: 29 May 2011 Time: 6:00 AM - 6:00 PM

Time Zone: London

Description:
The Ancestor's Trail, named after Richard Dawkins’ book the 'Ancestor's Tale', combines biodiversity, hill walking, evolution and the arts. It represents, as far as we know, the only biological pilgrimage and involves a group of scientists/ atheists / environmentalists/ artists working together to develop an annual celebration of our shared origins through evolution. This will be the second Ancestor's Trail.

So how does the event work? Simultaneously a number of disparately located walking groups will begin trails that eventually coalesce, depicting the story of evolution in reverse. The number of walkers following the trail will gradually swell as tributary groups, representing the various branches the tree of life, merge with the main body of walkers. Eventually, the ever-increasing band of hikers will arrive together at Kilve beach ~ famous for its fossils. There we will celebrate what has to be the most spectacularly belated birthday anniversary of all time!

  1. Thanks for plugging this. Most appreciated, our Crowdfunder pitch is so nearly there now,under £100 still to go although the deadline is this Sunday 1st May. If you live too far away to make it, don't forget you can invest as a non attender and I'll send you a video of the day.
