Unseen Cambridge: The Geology Beneath Our Feet

Steve Boreham

Quaternary Palaeoenvironments Group, Department of Geology, University of Cambridge

Steve Boreham spent seven years researching the Pleistocene geology the Cambridge District. The study included some 5000 borehole and trial pit records, which yielded detailed stratigraphic data. Steve's research unravelled a complex Pleistocene geological history including the advance of the Anglian ice sheets, the genesis of the Ouse and Cam river systems, major landscape changes and the development of the drainage patterns observed today.

This presentation considers a variety of well-known Cambridge landmarks, investigates their geology and attempts to reconstruct their past palaeoenvironments. This is a new way of seeing Unseen Cambridge: The geology beneath our feet.
