The Role of Stones will enable students to develop their knowledge and understanding of rocks, geological timescales and how the interaction of human and physical processes influences and changes landscapes. Fieldwork opportunities help to connect students’ everyday lived experience with what they learn in the geography classroom.

The unit will broaden the students’ knowledge from the geology of Britain to our use of rocky landscapes for leisure and the contentious issue of energy supply.
