As part of the annual Burlington House Courtyard Lates evening, there will be a series of behind-the-scenes tour of the Geological Society’s Library.

This is a chance to see rooms of the Society not usually open to the public and some treasures from their collections. The tour includes a visit to Map Room with its collection of 40,000 geological maps from around the world.

To mark the Geological Society’s Year of Carbon and the courtyard theme of Elements, the tours will include a look at a few items from the Geological Society’s archive that throw light on the importance of the coal industry to the development of the science of geology in the 19th Century.

This event is free but pre-booking is essential. Tours take place on Friday 19th July at 6pm, 7pm and 8pm and last approximately 45 minutes.

SUPPORT THIS WEBSITE

This website has been running now for just over a decade, and while advertising revenue contributes to funding the website, but doesn't cover the costs. That is why I have set up a facility with DonorBox where you can contribute to the costs of the website and time invested in writing and research for the news articles.

It's very similar to the way The Guardian and many smaller websites are now seeking to generate an income in the face of rising costs and declining advertising.

Whether its a one-off donation or a regular giver, every additional support goes a long way to covering the running costs of this website, and keeping you regularly topped up doses of Londony news and facts.

If you like what your read on here, then please support the website here.

Thank you
