Charles Lyell Quizzes & Trivia

Charles Lyell was a British lawyer and was renowned as the best geologist of his time. He is perhaps most well known today because of his book the Principles of Geology. This book is one which speaks of uniformitarianism, an idea that whatever forces shaped the Earth are still in existence today. He not only questioned that, but he questions popular theories about geology which existed in Britain at that time.

He was among one of the first people to believe that the Earth was older than three hundred million years due to its geological anomalies. He has left behind quite a legacy. And if you think that you know what that legacy entails then try your luck with one of our many online quizzes today.
