Val Kirby
Landscapes of Wool and Water

This talk explores the formation and evolution of the landscapes of the Cotswolds and the Severn Vale, as they changed throughout geological time.
From the early history of wool production to the present day, it shows how our landscapes continued to change as technology developed, and are still changing.  It ends by asking what future landscapes might emerge from current challenges Рespecially climate change.
