Tent Talk | Piers Hale – Evolution and The Water-Babies: Science Fact or Science Fiction?

SATURDAY 15 June | 3.30pm | The Big Top

We are privileged to have historian of science Piers Hale of the University of Oklahoma talk to us about his forthcoming book on Water-Babies and evolution. 45min plus Q&A
