The European Geoparks Network (EGN) was founded in 2000, initially comprising four geoparks. In 2009, GeoMôn, the Anglesey Geopark in North Wales, was recognised by the EGN as a European Geopark. To promote geotourism and education, the Geopark has erected 13 geological information boards at Anglesey's most iconic geological sites. To provide essential context to these boards and the trails outlined on them, this guide to the geology of the island has been published. It has been written by three GeoMôn members to stimulate interest in the Island's geology and to help visitors and inhabitants alike understand the complex geological history of Anglesey's vast array of different rocks and their fascinating and exciting origins. For those who find difficulty in visiting the geosites and seeing the geoboards, the photographs and explanatory text in this book provide an alternative "virtual" study tour of the Island.
