The Sound of the Sea: Seashells and the Fate of the Oceans

About the Event

The allure of seashells is primal. Today, as in the past, seashells provide an immediately recognizable link to the ocean. Examine the ancient human fascination with seashells, their history as currency, their use as religious and luxury objects, and what they reveal about Earth’s changing climate.
