About this book

This book gives a comprehensive and authoritative account of the basic geology of the county and its relationships with a wide range of topics, including soils, ecology, agriculture, prehistoric archaeology, hydrogeology, mineral resources and building stones.

The editor John Catt worked on soil research at Rothamsted and is Hon. Professor of Geography at University College London. The chapter authors are John Catt and thirteen local experts from the Hertfordshire Geological Society.

A landmark publication for Hertfordshire, which until now has lacked an authoritative work on the county's geology and how this influences the landscape as we see it today.

This book is for everyone interested in the county and its natural history as well as professional geologists, physical geographers, soil scientists, archaeologists, ecologists and conservationists.
