Industrial and societal legacies of Carboniferous geology in South Wales

Tuesday 14 February 2017, at 6:30 PM - 7:30 PM
Wallace Lecture Theatre Cardiff University Cardiff, CF10 3AT

The 2016-17 monthly series of evening lectures in the School of Earth and Ocean Sciences will consider the geological history of Wales. Lectures begin at 6.30pm and are held in the Wallace Lecture Theatre (0.13), Main Building, Cardiff University, Park Place, CF10 3AT (except on 11 April). No booking is required.
The series will trace the geological history of Wales from its origin in the southern hemisphere, its movement northwards prior to its collision to form the British Isles, the effects of different climates, an ever changing flora and fauna, and culminating in the arrival and diversification of its people. It will also consider how the geological processes that formed its coal, limestone and minerals are inextricably linked to major economic and social impacts in Wales.
