Lifelong Learning 4 day course:

Field Geology in Mid Wales: volcanoes, tropical reefs and copper ores

Two consecutive weekends in June:  17th / 18th  and   24 / 25th  
10.00 am – 5.00 pm each day

The hill country near Kingston and Builth Wells contain some of Britain’s oldest rocks, from late Precambrian to Silurian ages. We visit nationally-reknowned locations, including active quarries where the geology is clearly visible, and where the collecting of rock types, minerals and fossils is unrestricted.

No prior knowledge of geology is assumed.

Please note you will need to make your own travel and accommodation arrangements (tutor can advise), with meeting times and places to be confirmed.

The course is organised through Cardiff University. It carries assessment, which is very difficult to fail!  Attendees usually find assessment on these courses useful for consolidating what they have learned.

Tuition fee is £175.00   (concessionary fee available £140.00)
