Ancient Kelp Forests

land tree - sea tree: did kelp grow in those ancient seas?

Seaweeds do not fossilise well so it is hard to know what the algal landscape might have looked like in those limestone seas

But we hope there was kelp, the rich, spectacular trees of the sea, and deep sweeping kelp forests like we still see today. In this next phase of the project, we want to encourage more seaweed and to see the beginnings of the kelp forest in this picture grow richer, longer and more dramatic to fully realise the immersal experience of visiting our Ancient Landscape!
