Herdman?– Sir William Herdman was the founder and benefactor the Department of Geology at the University of Liverpool. The Herdman Society is the undergraduate society for the Earth Sciences at the University. The Jane Herdman Laboratories were named for William’s wife and the George Herdman Chair of Geology established 100 years ago in memory of their son who died in World War 1.
In recent years this symposium has become a significant event in the North West England attracting over 250 participants each year. The symposium is pitched at undergraduate level, although our excellent speakers manage to excite interest across all levels including postgraduate students, academic staff, local geological society members, school students and teachers.
