An event being run as part of Heath Week in association with the Thames Basin Heaths Partnership.
Dr Mike Simmonds of University of Reading will take us on a journey from the Ice Age to the present day, a story laid down over thousands of years in the peat preserved at Chobham Common. It documents for us how the vegetation has changed, the climate and what life may have been like for the prehistoric people that inhabited this dynamic landscape.
