Geology Explained in South Wales., T R Owen.
5 Geology Explained in South Wales. T R Owen.
David & Charles. 1984 071535860X / 9780715358603 Hardcover Very Good Very Good 
A very good 210 page hardback book without inscriptions or other marks. Very light shelfwear, endpapers mildly foxed. This easy to follow guide describes the geology, scenery and the effects of geology and landforms on the lives of man in an important geological area. The geology of the region is related to the surface's features, how they evolved through millions of years and how the landforms today affect industry and agriculture. South Wales has some of the finest coastal scenery in Britain, as in Pembrokeshire and the Gower Peninsula, and the author illuminates these areas for the geologist and the visitor. The problem of the Pembrokeshire stones on Stonehenge is outlined in the light of recent theories; and there is information for the collector of graptolites, trilobites, corals, ammonites and other fossils. Beginning with the St David's district, the author moves on to Fishguard and the Prescelly Hills (birthplace of Stonehenge) and to classic localities in South Pembrokeshire. The reader is taken on a trip across the Black Mountains of Carmarthenshire, followed by visits to the Gower Peninsula. The travels continue with journeys up the Swansea Valley, the headwaters of the Vale of Neath (land of waterfalls and King Arthur's cave) and on to the great plateaux of the South Wales coalfield and the hills of Mid-Wales, once surveyed by Romans in search of gold. The account concludes with a visit to the rich agricultural Vale of Glamorgan. All chapters are fully illustrated with diagrams, maps, and panoramic views and there is a full glossary.

9 South-East Dyfed Minerals: A Survey of the Archaeological Resource Threatened by Mineral Extraction" March 1994: In Two Parts - Part 1. K Murphy and P Sambrook.
Cadw. 1994 First Edition. Paperback Very Good No Jacket 
Clean and sound except that the first page is beginning to come adrift from the glue holding the text block into the cover. No inscriptions or other marks, minimal shelfwear. Approximately 42 pages of A4, printed on one side only, followed by 27 maps, some A4, some folded A3. Some of the maps are beginning to escape from the glue as well - perfect binding is far from being what its name suggests!! Apparently this is a report which remains unpublished according to some sources. The purpose of this project is to gain more information on the sites and monuments and associated landscapes of SE Dyfed threatened by mineral extraction. This will enable the Trust and Cadw to assess their relative importance and provide a consistent and objective basis for planning advice. Initially, a desk top study was carried out. The information gained from this was supported by field visits to rapidly assess the present state of the archaeological resource. In total, about 850 new sites were identified and examined. Many other sites which were recorded only through documentary sources on Dyfed Archaeological Trust's Sites and Monuments Record also benefited from a field visit. The greatest number and highest density of sites were recorded on Carboniferous limestone and millstone grit. The vast majority of these sites are associated with the limestone extraction and burning industry. The number and density of archaeological sites on the coal measures was far lower. Here, though, there is a greater range of archaeological sites and a greater diversity in the historic landscape. Except for the working areas of large quarries, all the land with planning permission for quarrying was examined. Because of lack of time, it was not possible to visit all the sites which British Coal have designated as areas of future interest. However, an approximately equal amount of ground was examined in the field, in the limestone/millstone grit part of the survey and in the coal-field survey area. Because of the large number of sites associated with limestone quarrying and burning recorded in this survey, a greater emphasis was placed on the background study of this industry rather than on the study of the coal mining industry and sites of earlier periods. All the records generated during the course of this survey have been integrated with Dyfed Archaeological Trust's computer-held Sites and Monuments Record. The numbers referred to in this study are the record numbers on the SMR (see section 11 Catalogue of sites).
