The Elizabethan Era? Is that all? I've just spent most of the morning in what turns out to be the late Silurian, ie about 450 million years ago, but nobody can agree on that to within 15 Ma or so.

feel free to ignore the rant....
Trick question on the test. Gives you the archetypal Devonian formation, and doesn't give you that as one of the options. Three textbooks, too much coffe and a specialised dictionary later, and I still can't get a meaning for the crucial note on the Map. Google has the answer on the top page. Makes you wonder about the worth of learning sometimes.
The ones with significant commas making the difference between the true and false staements are almost as bad. I wouldn't mind, if I could actually go and make use of this knowledge and climb the Analcime bearing olivine Dolerite out there without getting rained on....
