Geoheritage Festival Talks Season 2022-23
The NW Highlands controversy geology, geologists and social climbing in Victorian times by Peter Gutteridge (Jan23)
Short bio from Peter Gutteridge...
I did my undergraduate degree in geological sciences at Leeds followed by a Ph.D. at Manchester University on the Carboniferous Limestone of Derbyshire. Since then I have been fortunate to work on carbonate rocks throughout the world from all parts of the stratigraphic column. The geology of the NW Highlands of Scotland has always interested me since I received a thorough indoctrination in structural geology and the Moine thrust controversy during my time in Leeds and I try to get up to the area as often as possible.
