Geological History of Lethbridge

Glaciologist Hester Jiskoot tours us through the geological history of the Lethbridge region over the past 80 million years, starting with the inland-sea during the time of the Dinosaurs and Ammonites, through massive gravel-sheet rivers, ice sheets and ice-dammed lakes, and up to the geography of modern times. Jiskoot also explains how people used the landscape and geology for city planning and building materials.
