October - Field Geology in mid Wales

Lifelong Learning 4 day course:-
Field Geology in Mid Wales: volcanoes, tropical reefs and copper ores 
Two weekends in October: 15th, 16th, 22nd, 23rd
10.00 am – 5.00 pm each day. 
The hill country near Builth Wells and Kington contains some of Britain’s oldest rocks, from late Precambrian to Silurian ages. We visit nationally-renowned locations, including active quarries where the geology is clearly visible, and where the collecting of rock types, minerals and fossils is unrestricted.
No prior knowledge of the area or geology is assumed.

Please note you will need to make your own travel and accommodation arrangements, with meeting times and places to be confirmed.  
The course is organised through Cardiff University. It carries assessment, which is very difficult to fail! Attendees usually find assessment on these courses useful for consolidating what they have learned.
Tuition fee is £160.00  (concessionary fee available £128.00).
Enrolments can be made by ‘phoning 029  2087  0000  or see website.
