    Deep fractures opened up in the rocks forming the exposed parts of the Mendip islands, and into these were swept the bones of late Triassic lizards, gliding reptiles and dinosaurs. Thus, by the close of the Triassic, the Mendips had been transformed into an archipelago, lapped by a shallow sub-tropical sea. Label of French publisher and mapseller Andriveau-Goujon on linen.

Triassic rocks ( to million years ago) In the Triassic, Britain was part of the vast supercontinent of Pangaea, into which many of the world's landmasses were grouped. Mountains, including the Mendips, created by uplift at the end of the Carboniferous were rapidly being eroded. This second and completely revised edition of Special Report No.

(), comprising the correlation between the Belgian and British substages. The British Isles lie at the juncture of several regions with past episodes of tectonic mountain building. These orogenic belts form a complex geology that records a huge and varied span of Earth's history.

Of particular note was the Caledonian Orogeny during the Ordovician Period, c. – Ma and Early Silurian period, when the craton Baltica collided with the terrane Avalonia to form the Adjacent bodies of water: Atlantic Ocean.

In general, the oldest Basement rocks in the southern British Isles are considerably younger than those in the northern British Isles.

(Section – Section ) In addition to the nine Basement terranes, the geological history of the British Isles can be interpreted in terms of a series of five distinct orogenic and overlying covering units.

The British Geological Survey have produced an interactive map of the geology of the whole of the British Isles, which includes the whole of Scotland and Ireland. William Smith's 'Great Map' () of England and parts of Scotland's geology, copied from the University of New Hampshire USA's website.

From wikipedia, on the geology of Britain.Overview. Seismographical research shows that the crust of the Earth below Great Britain is from 27 to 35 km (17 to 22 miles) thick.

The oldest surface rocks are found in north west Scotland and are more than half as old as the rocks are thought to underlie much of Great Britain (although boreholes have only penetrated the first few kilometres), but next appear extensively at the.
