C is for Crag and Tail

A Crag and tail is a type of hill caused by glaciers, huge rivers of ice which used to flow across our landscape. Watch the video below to get a quick intro to glaciation near to Dynamic Earth.


Learn more about glaciers and how they changed the landscape here.

Come to Holyrood Park and search for some glacial boulders or erratics. There’s more information here!
