The Geology of Britain; An Introduction
Covers the geological history of Britain from over 2,000 million years ago to the present day. Chapters cover fundamentals of geology, descriptions of the rocks, minerals and fossils of the recognised periods of geological time and the areas where they are found today.
Throughout the book the modern concept of plate tectonics is continually used to explain the geological processes which have built Britain. This book is written for the lay person interested in the great variety of Britain's rocks and landscapes but also includes a wealth of information for students at all levels.
