The Geology of Oxfordshire

by Philip Powell

Paperback, 108 pages

Oxfordshire's geology is as fascinating as any in the British Isles. The rich variety of its landscapes, ranging from ironstone hills, to Cotswold valleys, lush lowland and chalk downs – reflects the character of the underlying rocks.  And the wide variety of fossils, ranging from ammonites, corals and brachiopods to crocodiles, dinosaurs and even lions – reflects the ancient environments in which they lived.

The story of how these rocks and fossils originated is a journey through time and space, a journey that lasted hundreds of million years across an Oxfordshire that has varied from hot desert, to tropical rain forest, coral sea, shallow lagoon and frozen waste.
