This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can usually download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1892 edition. Excerpt: ...the ice moving in this direction was probably diverged over the low col above Llyn Cawlyd into the valley where the lake now lies. The mountainous country lying to the north-east of Capel Curig also gave birth to glaciers which moved north-eastwards towards the Vale of Conway. Thus, at a certain period, every valley was filled by its own special glacier, those in the cwms and upland valleys going to feed those in the bigger valleys, and these again moving outwards in all directions from the mountains to spread out as fans over the lowlands. The track of the old glaciers is marked at many places by smoothed, rounded and striated rocks, the striae indicating the direction of the ice-flow. The cwms are especially rich in the remains of glacial action, and huge moraines are there seen in all stages of preservation. These mark the final retreat of the glaciers after the ice had disappeared from the low grounds. TRANS. ROY. SOC. EDIN., VOL. XL. PART II. (NO. 20). 3 z In Wales, as in other glaciated countries, erosion must have been carried on most rapidly along the chief lines of ice-flow. At certain stages of the Glacial Epoch the glaciers in the main valleys must have been engaged in deepening and widening the channels along which they moved, while the tributary valleys and cwms were protected underneath a mantle of neve and snow. One is therefore not surprised to find that the more important valleys are at places over-deepened as compared with the lateral valleys, and now have a trough-like form with a flat bottom and steep cliff-like walls, giving a U-shaped figure in cross-section. Features of this kind are well seen in Nant Francon, where the valley from a little above Ogwen Bank right up to its head at Ogwen Falls is remarkably flat and...
