Talk: Edinburgh, Geology City
20th September 2020
Edinburgh, more than any other city in the world, wears its geology with pride. It is the reason the city is here in the first place, and the variety of sedimentary and igneous rocks creates the sense of place and landscape of the city, and shapes patterns of habitation and transport. Historically, geology has provided building material and energy, and been the inspiration for the development of new ideas. Join me for a virtual tour of the city I call home, exploring all the different aspects of the connections between rocks and people.
