Temporary Exhibition: By Hammer, Lens and Pencil

August 18 @ 9:30 am - September 15 @ 5:00 pm

| Free

By hammer, lens, and pencil: North Kerry landscape in the eyes of Frederick James Foot is a tribute to a long forgotten Irish geologist, who spent time between 1856-59 surveying North Kerry landscape. The exhibition consists of his field-sketches and hand-coloured illustrations from North Kerry, with supporting specimens of minerals, rocks, and fossils observed by Frederick James Foot during his time carrying on extensive and detailed fieldwork. Apart from mapping the Kerry landscape during the years 1856 -1859, he published “On the Geology of the Neighbourhood of Tralee” (1857), where he mentions the discovery of fossilized Devonian plant in sandstone at North Kerry coast. This exhibition is organised as part of National Heritage Week.
