Swaledale: Where the Gods Shed a Tear: Geology and Industrial Archaeology.

ByPeter Denison-EdsonStephen Eastmead

Well if a picture is worth a thousand words then we have over half a million for you with over 500 colour images! In this volume we are mainly looking at both geological features and the impact of man extracting ores and rocks over the last two millennia, using the records saved on the SWAAG database. In essence we are showing you what is there when you drive or walk in and around Swaledale which usually goes unnoticed or at least unappreciated by most visitors. If you are visiting the area it will give you a pictorial taste of what you can go and see, as most records have the Ordinance Survey map co-ordinates so that you can easily find them. The images also give you a view of the many landscapes present in the dales as well as many images you won’t see that are under the dales! Each record has been saved onto Swaledale and Arkengarthdale Archaeology Group’s database by its members. Each record usually contains both text and up to 30 images. Many records are on public access land or footpaths.
