The Backpacker’s Guide To Prehistory

Have you ever wondered what travel essentials you would need to pack for a journey back in time? Who has the best tips for things to see and do (and avoid!) from throughout earth’s history? Are you considering a journey back in time to the Devonian? It’ll be lovely and warm so pack your swimwear, but don’t forget your shark diving cage and oxygen tank is all I can say!

I had lots of fun recording an episode of a new podcast called “The Backpacker’s Guide To Prehistory” which is the brainchild of David Mountain. David invites two experts on various geological periods to each episode to learn about the “top travel tips for time travellers”. It is a fun and interesting way to learn about the past.

Download the whole series from wherever you get your podcasts. Or simply click below to listen to the Devonian episode to learn about placoderms, tetrapods, the first forests, giant fungi and the end-Devonian extinctions.
