For geoscientists, almost any urban cemetery provides a valuable opportunity to carry out scientific fieldwork right on the doorstep and at no cost. A new exhibit, The Geology of Oxford Gravestones, highlights the geological features and social history revealed in Oxford’s graveyards. Curated by Nina Morgan and Philip Powell, geologists and honorary associates at the Oxford University Museum of Natural History, the exhibit is free and runs until 12 September at the Weston Library, Broad Street, Oxford.
