The Causeway Coast - A Geological Excursion Guide to

ISBN 978-1-907053-64-1 
The Giants Causeway is the best known geological feature of the North Antrim coast, but there are many other sites of considerable interest. This book explains the geology of the area in a global context placing them in the context of plate tectonics. It relates how the rocks which now make up Ireland moved across the surface of the world through geological time and how they came to shape the extraordinary landscape of this very special area. The well-illustrated excursions are central to the book, providing the reader with the means to explore the sites themselves. It is written to encourage visitors to delve into and understand better the area's geological history.
