Event 36 | Adam Nicolson | The Sea is not made of Water


Adam Nicolson – The Sea is not made of Water

Few places are as familiar as the shore and few as full of mystery and surprises. Acclaimed nature writer, Adam Nicolson, explores the natural wonders of the intertidal and our long human relationship with it. The physics of the seas, the biology of anemone and limpet, the long history of the earth; all interconnect in this zone where the philosopher scientist and poet can meet. Twice a day, every day, change dominates its existence. Every part of life here is dedicated to surviving and thriving in a world of alteration.
