1st Oct Presidential address by Philip Firth- How geology has influenced the rise of civilisations in South America: observations in Peru and Bolivia.' “Philip Firth started our new session with a superbly illustrated talk on the Geology of the Andes stressing the the role that geology has played in the development of human civilisations. The talk spanned examples from the coast to the internal zones of the mountains. It included ceremonial sites of prehistoric communities including the Moche and later the Incas together with a wide range of mineral deposits exploited from the colonial era to the present day'. quote from Jim Marshall
