Following the "deep time" revolution of the early 19th century, instigated by Hutton, Miller and Lyell, with its profound implications for religion and education, public interest in geology grew markedly in the UK. Between 1841 and 1968, the British weekly magazine Punch regularly published cartoons depicting geology, alongside those about prehistory and archaeology. This talk will present and discuss a variety of geological cartoons, and consider what they tell us about readers' and artists' understandings of the science and its practitioners.
