Illustrated talks and field trips for local history and nature conservation groups
I am a speaker for meetings
My subjects are:
Geology, building stones and historic architecture in and around South Yorkshire.
An investigation of the construction history of medieval churches in South Yorkshire and the surrounding counties.
Rocks and minerals under the microscope.
I am a freelance lecturer and photographer who works as a geologist and building stone specialist, with a particular interest in historic buildings. Field trips are available on demand and I can tailor make talks that relate to your area.
A computer and a digital screen for Powerpoint presentations must be provided by groups.
