A few years ago we celebrated the 200th anniversary of the publication of William Smith’s geological map of England and Wales. For the very first time we were able to see something of the immense amount of time it has taken to form and shape these islands. Since then, many more people has added pieces to that jigsaw of geological time, such that we now know that the beginnings of Britain go back 3 billion years!
This course takes a closer look at the rocks and the scenery of selected parts of Britain and at the people who have helped us to unravel their fascinating story. We’ll be taking a journey through our past and using the rocks, the maps and the scenery to help us to discover more. No previous knowledge is expected or a required, just a sense of adventure!
