About Palaeontology

Welcome to the Palaeontology Society. This society is for students who have an interest in palaeontology and although the majority are studying palaeontology, it is open to anyone who is interested regardless of course!

We host a mix of palaeo related activities such as game nights, documentary or dinos themed movie nights, fossil hunting (Southsea beach and the Isle of Wight), museum trips and more! We also do many social events such as Purple Wednesday, pub nights, club nights (you'll often find us at indie night!) and house parties.

If you're interested in the society don't hesitate to follow our instagram at uoppalaeosociety. We also have a WhatsApp for discussing events and anything dinosaur or palaeo related! Please let us know if there are any events you want us to host this year by messaging on the instagram or emailing us at We want everyone to feel comfortable in our society so don't hesitate to drop us a message, we want this society to be a safe space for everyone!
