GeoBritannica: Geological landscapes and the British peoples

GeoBritannica: Geological landscapes and the British peoples

GeoBritannica concerns the geological legacy of Britain, an inheritance bequeathed by its bedrock to the peoples who have lived on the island for the eleven millennia since the Ice Ages. The authors explain the geological foundations of the landscape and the raw materials it provides. They show how this geology has been utilised by society and by individuals in creative acts of the imagination.

The reader will discover how regional environments and interests have been tackled by geologists in endeavours as diverse as mining, quarrying, architecture, literature and the visual arts. The authors provide a modern interpretation of the geological history of Britain and place this in its historic, social and artistic contexts.
