A wide-ranging introduction to this fascinating subject for beginners.
Did you know we were once 60 degrees south of the Equator?
Almost everywhere in the British Isles has at some time been torn by earthquakes, scorched by volcanoes, scraped by ice, covered by seas or raised to high mountains. We will piece together the evidence for this dramatic story from the rocks, minerals and fossils found all over the country, using basic geological principles to unravel the sequence of events.
There will also be a chance to study many geological specimens, maps and books put out in the teaching room. You are very welcome to bring along your own geological specimens which you would like to be identified or which you think are of special interest.
No previous background in geology is needed for the course and no reading is required in advance.
This day school is repeated on Sunday 8 October 2023.
Please note: this event will close to enrolments at 23:59 BST on 4 October 2023.
