Devon shows perhaps one of the most varied displays of geology in the British Isles. Intended for anyone with an interest in geology, The Geology of Devon covers the geological development of the county and adjacent areas from Devonian times to the present day. Each chapter has a list of representative localities so that the book can also serve as an excursion guide for field work.
This is a new and completely revised edition of The Geology of Devon, first published in 1982 and reprinted three times. Each chapter in this new edition has been thoroughly revised and rewritten to reflect the major changes in knowledge since the first edition. There are four additional chapters, on Geological Pioneers, Engineering Geology, Environmental Geology and Off-shore Geology. The book also lists all official and local sites of geological and geomorphological interest, includes an expanded reference list and a colour geological map
