Tales of Ancient Life

Dr. Adam Pritchard, assistant curator of paleontology, may be hunkered down in his home for the time being, but he's still determined to bring the wonders and knowledge of paleontology to VMNH audiences! "Tales of Ancient Life" is a series of videos in which Dr. Pritchard explores fossils from the VMNH collections, how they fit into our world, and the whole of the history of the fossil record. Each new episode will be posted to the museum's Facebook page, which you can access without a Facebook account. You can also go to to watch all 4 episodes online today!

Museum Educator Kayla Lacy is now providing live videos on the VMNH Facebook page, when she goes to the museum to care for the museum's animals! Check-out her first video here.
