This strikingly photographed narrative tells the story of Snowdonia, touching on ancient oceans, volcanoes, and climate change. Its mountainous spectacle 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 these former environments are preserved by rocks and landforms within the present setting, and here the clues they provide of a forgotten past are revealed, encouraging the reader to infer the history behind Snowdonia's wild beauty.

After 19th-century controversy and an absence of 100 years, the work of remapping this area of Snowdonia was begun by the Geological Survey who gave special attention to the volcanic rocks of the Ordovician succession. Using the stratigraphy established by the detailed 1:10,000 mapping as a basis, a major geochemical study of the volcanic rocks has been accomplished alongside multi-disciplinary studies of sedimentology, physical volcanology, palaeontology, structure and metamorphism. The great age of this volcanic province, subsequent tectonic events, uplift and erosion have allowed the study to encompass all stages from its birth, through its maturity into its lingering death, in a way that is denied those analyzing younger activity. This book represents an advance in our understanding of volcanic processes in marine environments, acidic ash-flow tuffs in subaerial and subaqueous settings, tectonic controls on volcanism and sedimentation and petrogenetic modelling.

Excerpt: The slate industry in Wales began during the Roman period when slate was used to roof the fort at Segontium, now Caernarvon. The slate industry grew slowly until the early 18th century, then expanded rapidly until the late 19th century, at which time the most important slate producing areas were in northwest Wales, including the Penrhyn Quarry near Bethesda, the Dinorwic Quarry near Llanberis, the Nantlle Valley quarries, and Blaenau Ffestiniog, where the slate was mined rather than quarried. Penrhyn and Dinorwig were the two...

This book explains to the hillwalker, in easy to understand but accurate terms, how geology has shaped the landscape of Snowdonia. A selection of thirteen guided walks are used to illustrate this in terms of what can be seen on the ground. Divided into two parts, it is intended to help those who love Snowdonia's mountain scenery to understand how this haunting landscape came about. The first half narrates the story of colliding continents, volcanoes, mountain-building and glaciation in creating Snowdonia, explaining why volcanoes occurred, the rocks they created and how to interpret signs of mountain-building and glaciation on the ground. The second half describes several recommended walks, of differing levels of difficulty, but all with a wide variety of geological features to be seen and, most important, enjoying consistently fantastic views of the very best of Snowdonia's wonderful scenery. The author has concentrated on what you can see as you walk around the hills, pointing to conspicuous, easily seen features in rocks and the overall shape of the terrain in accounting for the present day landscape.

The first complete field guide for the mountains of Snowdonia through the seasons, its plants, animals and rocks. Everything you're likely to see in the hills at that time of year is here in one volume. Follow the seasons of Snowdonia; winter is the perfect time for studying rocks and lichen; in spring the bog flowers flourish and beautiful orchids bloom; summer brings fruits and flowers, and the trees are in full leaf; in autumn an amazing display of funghi appear, the hill farms are busy again in preparation for winter and as the nights draw in it is time again to sit beside the fire and tell tales of local myth and legend. A little knowledge of thyme, tormentil and thrift will enhance your day in the hills. Fossil trilobytes and roche moutonn'e (rock sheep), bogbean beer and caterpillar fungus, are just some of the fascinating things you will discover.
