This collaborative meeting organised by two Special Interest Groups of the Geological Society focuses on the geology of South West Britain. 

From Roman Baths to building stones, fossil finds to mineral mines, the geology and industrial history of South West Britain is full of interest. Amateur, professional and academic geologists and collectors alike played key roles in unravelling the fascinating geology and revealing the resources of this complex area. Many of their names and achievements are now forgotten.

A meeting about Collectors, Collections and the Geology of South West Britain, jointly organised by the History of Geology Group (HoGG) and the Geological Curators Group (GCG) on 18 – 19 September aims to set this omission right.

Hosted by the Bath Royal Literary and Scientific Institution (BRLSI) in their elegant premises in the centre of Bath, the meeting will include a day of talks followed by a day of optional field trips.


The event is open to all – and online registration is now open. 

Registration is just £19/£15 for members of HoGG, CGC, BRSLI and the Bath Geological Society.
