Snowdonia has a great story to tell, of ancient oceans, mountains, volcanoes and climate change. The mountain landscape of Snowdonia is the result of everything that has happenend to it over geological time - the product of the ancient landscapes that went before it, fragments of which are preserved by rocks and landforms within the present landscape, providing clues of a forgotten past that can be read as you appreciate Snowdonia's wild beauty. The present landscape has also been shaped by the people that have worked the land and exploited its minerals.
This book explores the landscape of Snowdonia, and the rocks from which it is carved, in order to tell a story of oceans, shallow seas, volcanoes, mountain building and climate change. The book's aim is to provide a narrative with which to interpret the clues in the landscape from which its past can be inferred, enhancing ones appreciation of this spectacular and world famous Welsh upland.
