Dob’s Lynn Series

Dob’s Lynn is a fascinating ancient site where graptolites- tiny glittery fossils- are found in the rock formations. It is on a fault line and 2000’ above sea level in the Border hills with a small stream running through it. This land, 450  million  years ago, was situated south of the equator. The temperature of the water where the graptolites lived at that time was probably around 25°C. This land has been moving northwards over a long period of time.
This is the inspiration for this series of work.
