The Rare Book & Manuscript Library, in collaboration with the Geology Department, presents In Search of Lost Time: The study of Earth history and chronology from the 18th to the 21st century, on view from January 24-July 22, 2022The related concepts of time, chronology, and history form the lens through which Earth scientists view, understand, and interpret a dynamic planet. This exhibit will explore how the chronology of the Earth was established, with a focus on six themes that gradually led to the consensus view that the Earth is roughly 4.55 billion years of age.

Please join us in the RBML for the exhibit's opening reception from 3-5pm on Monday, January 24!
