Landscape fashioned by geology - Edinburgh and West Lothian

Landscape fashioned by geology - Edinburgh and West Lothian

A revised edition of the successful Edinburgh book. The tranquil appearance of the city of Edinburgh nestling between the surrounding hills and the undulating countryside of West Lothian belies their dramatic volcanic past. The Lothian landscape took over 400 million years to reach its present shape. This book tells the story of its journey from erupting volcanoes, through rivers, seas and ice-caps, to the peaceful parks, restored quarries and level playing fields we see today. "What more exciting story could there be than the story in the rocks and landscapes of Edinburgh." Dr Stuart Monro, Scientific Director, Our Dynamic Earth.
