Geology of Bricks and Brickmaking

By September 8, 2006

Follow me on:

About's guide to Geology, Andrew Alden, has an interesting article this week on a subject near and dear to my heart--brick making and the geology and chemistry behind the construction of this lovely stuff. This great photograph of an early 'Phorpres' brick was taken by Steve Roe at the Spurn Head, England, a National Nature Reserve on the Yorkshire coast.
