Speaker(s): Liam Herringshaw BSc PhD
With half a billion years of history in just under 12,000 square kilometres, Yorkshire covers plenty of ground. In this class, geologist Dr Liam Herringshaw will attempt to summarise it in 180 minutes. From the possibly Precambrian slates of Ingleton in the north-west to the unequivocally Ice Age landscapes of Holderness in the south-east, the course will provide a quickfire tour of the county’s extraordinary geological history. Students are not expected to have any qualifications in geology, just an interest in the Earth.
This course will be delivered via Zoom. Students joining the course will need access to a computer, laptop or tablet with a microphone (essential) and a webcam (desirable) as well as a reliable broadband connection.
