Further Info

Much of my latest work has been on volcanic ashes in the Precambrian of Scotland. I am also Chairman of geoHeritage Fife, a charitable group I set up in 2000, to publicise the variety of Fife's wonderful geological heritage. The group has so far published seven geological trail leaflets, created a Geological Wall and a Jurassic Garden in St. Andrews. The group received funding from SNH and the GA to commission a plaster cast of giant fossil scorpion tracks considered at risk of damage. A forthcoming project is a book on the Building Stones of St. Andrews.
