Landscapes Below: Mapping and the New Science of Geology

Fri 24 November - Thu 29 March 2018

Cambridge University Library

During the late eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries, a new science of Geology developed. Intellectual curiosity produced a greater understanding of how the Earth’s strata were formed and layered.

Disagreement was, however, common.

Maps of the period did not just show new knowledge, but represented visible arguments about how that knowledge should be recorded. Landscapes Below explores geological map making, and how these new subterranean visions of the British landscape influenced our understanding of the Earth.
