This weekend course mixes field excursions, classroom lectures and practical activities to offer an introduction to the geology of the area. We will look at glacial deposits, and a range of ancient rocks that represent the roots of a great mountain range as well as its erosional remains. A great location to see a variety of fascinating rocks in the field.
