What is Frogglebox?
As a part of the Coalface to Wildspace project in Walsall, we created an immersive digital experience connecting Walsall’s deep history and heritage hidden under the surface of the visible landscape, to the wildlife and people that live here now. Frogglebox will take you on a journey through Walsall’s 400 million year old rock, travelling along 270 million year old rivers when the first amphibians appeared, and the 200 million old stone at Sutton Coldfield which was the start of the reptile era, before arriving back at our modern Walsall.
Ever wondered what Walsall used to be like, before the concrete jungle? In this digital, short film, you will take a journey through the layers of time, from the tropical coral seas of the Silurian period, 400 million years ago, through to the present day.
