William Smith is credited as the first person to create the very first geological map in 1815 known as Strata of England Wales & Scotland. This extraordinary 6×8 foot colorful engraving identified the layered stratification of rock that lay below the surface of the earth. Artists and scientists engaged in the earth sciences will reflect on and reveal their excavations of the mind and earth’s surface.
