Event Description

Inspired by Richard Dawkin’s book ‘The Ancestor’s tale’, subtitled ..a pilgrimage to the dawn of life.

Add ‘pilgrims’ to many disparate locations (each representing particular groups of living things)


..with a little pre-planned choreography, set them off on a symbolic journey to the ‘dawn of life’.


Where will this origin be? A beach called Kilve, liberally scattered with fossils.


This will be a secular pilgrimage.


Avoiding any ‘spiritual’ claims,


Carefully designed to have scientific integrity,


For non-religious people,
