Become a rock detective!
This useful free map shows the rocks of Britain and Ireland grouped according to the environment under which they were formed. The accompanying table explains how evidence for past climates, including the extreme conditions linked to mass extinctions, can be found in the rocks around us. Students can investigate these links in guided activities and
discover the mysteries revealed by the stories of the rocks.
