Introduction to Geology
Please note that the National Museum Cardiff is repeating its successful 'Introduction to Geology' course. It will be held on successive Thursday afternoons (1.30 - 4.00 p.m.) in March 2018 - for five weeks. Each session will consist of an illustrated talk by one of the Museum's geologists followed by a chance to handle and discuss relevant Museum specimens.
The aim will be to introduce participants to the basics of geology: from the structure of the Earth, geological time, the rock-cycle, rock structures, rock types (sedimentary, igneous and metamorphic), minerals and fossils. The course will end with a stroll through the geological history of Wales. No previous knowledge of geology is expected, and you'll be encouraged to ask questions and discuss ideas. The cost is just £65 for the course of five sessions, including illustrated handouts for each week.
