Scarborough’s Rotunda Museum’s website invites the reader to ‘learn about the fascinating geology of the Yorkshire Coast’. In the museum on the ground floor where there used to be a fine display of geological specimens - crystals, fossils and the like - with explanatory labels, there is now a gift shop.
Instead of geology the visitor is offered keyrings and plastic dinosaurs.
William Smith, ‘Father of English Geology’, who played a key role in the founding of the Rotunda, would not be impressed.
