Describes in detail the most important Quaternary sites in South-West England, some of which have been the subject of scientific research for over 150 years. Offers a remarkable account of how the natural environment responded to severe climatic change as the Quaternary era progressed over the last 2 million years, in terms of landforms, deposits and processes, and animal, plant and human communities. Describes the 63 nationally important GCR sites documenting a fascinating history of intense landscape and environmental changes within a relatively small area. Explores how these landscapes came into being, the forces that shaped them, and the climatic extremes which drove these changes.
This fully-illustrated volume provides the most up-to-date and comprehensive scientific text on the Quaternary history of South-West England, and its 1,300 cited references form the most complete bibliography on this subject.
