About this book

From Exmouth in Devon to Studland in Dorset, the 95 miles of the Jurassic Coast provides a fascinating record of 185 million years of earth's history. Divided into three periods, the Triassic, Jurassic and Cretaceous, this is an epic era in the history of the development of life on earth. All this time the continents were moving – collliding and drifting apart, resulting in many different and varied environments for life to colonise and where sediments were deposited.

The end result is a beautiful coastline bristling with evidence of its dramatic, colourful history its beauty is enhanced by a little understanding of the processes that have shaped it. This guide provides the visitor with that information in a simple, understandable manner.
