Education and leisure
The BGS publishes its own range of non-specialist books, guides and posters on geology and related themes under the Earthwise™ trademark.
These products include books, maps, posters and related products that will be of interest to students, vocational and non-vocational geologists, walkers and readers interested in the geology, scenery, rocks, minerals and fossils of the UK.
The Earthwise books cover a range of topics from the influence of geology on the taste of a good single malt, to the causes and effects of earthquakes.
A selection of Geological and scientific posters and gifts are available that illustrate geology in a popular, non-scientific way.
This section includes reproductions of several historic maps, by William Smith and James MacCulloch, plus books on related topics.
These concise guidecards provide a wealth of information on the geology of many popular tourist areas of England,
ranging from heritage coasts to London’s historic buildings.
