"A new Geological Map of England and Wales, with the Inland Navigations, exhibiting The Districts of Coal, 1820"
The title of this first geological survey of the area (by William Smith, Engineer) reminds us of one of the reasons why the Earth Sciences have always been so important - minerals, trade and money.
