On this field trip, as we wend our way through the hills, we’ll make a few stops to marvel at the repeating fault block pattern, their shear zone boundaries, and the formations and their contacts. We’ll learn how the geology has shaped the geomorphology, understand why the hillscarring quarries are where they are, and why Mt Lofty is so lofty.
One of the main rock types used at Stonehenge is called bluestone. Is that the same bluestone used for buildings in Adelaide or even the bluestone used for buildings in Melbourne? This talk will be a brief summary from internet sources of 15 or so famous monuments, that is, buildings, carvings and other constructions from around the world. The talk will be mostly about answering geological questions, particularly ‘What is that monument made of?’
