Earth Collections : Pliocene database

The geological timescale

Pliocene holdings in the University collections are quite small - numbering just over 700 items, chiefly because deposition in the British Isles was limited to a few localities in East Anglia and Cornwall.

To search the Pliocene database please enter a search term in one or more fields and press submit.
