  • These complimentary exhibits speak to the unique geological evidence found in the North Slope of the former Don Valley Brick Works. The slope contains a rarely preserved interglacial period that occurred roughly 120,000 years ago. Along with the six other layers of sediment, the slope tells the story of a warming and cooling earth over many millions of years.
