Cornwall: A Geologist’s Perspective

Cornwall: A Geologist’s Perspective will send you on a virtual journey through Cornwall’s geological past. Venture through Cornwall’s story of plate tectonics, and how the rocks beneath our feet can tell us about a time when Cornwall was at the bottom of an ocean and then centre of a giant mountain range.

Understand how the geological evolution over the last 400 million years has shaped the landscape around us today, influencing modern industries that define the county’s history, present day, and future.

Dr. Sam Hughes is a lecturer at Camborne School of Mines (University of Exeter) and a St Ives local; his fascinating and engaging talk will last 1 – 2 hours including a Q&A session and takes place at Cohort.

A must-do evening activity for all geographers and budding geologists.
