The history of that part of the earth's surface now occupied by the Valley of the Thames, as treated in these pages, embraces the whole period of geological time from the Oldest rocks Of Malvern to the latest prehistoric alluvium. The mind perceives and contemplates a long succession of lands and seas much different from those we now behold, the beginning and ending of many systems of associated life and varying physical agencies, all of which have had a traceable in?uence on the present aspect of this midland region of England.
After marking the main features Oof physical geography, and describing with the aid of maps and sections the systems of rocks in the order of time, the organic remains of each great group of strata are catalogued as fully as my own knowledge, combined with the valuable aids which are in each case thankfully acknow ledged, has enabled me to accomplish the difficult task.
