The Geology of Britain

an introduction

by Peter Toghill

“Visitors to Britain are always struck by the great variety of scenery in what is a relatively small geographical area. The ever-changing scenery and landscape pattern is a reflection of an underlying complex geological sequence and structure developed through hundreds of millions of years of Earth history”

This classic work has an interlinking selection of photographs, diagrams and text. It is specifically written for the layman yet does not shy away from the complex and detailed. The large scale format works well for large scale explanation. If you want just one introductory guide to the geology of Britain as a whole, then this is it.
