Date: 13 - 19 April 2014

Location: Dijon, France

Convenors: Dick Moody and John Mather

This excursion will pay homage to the hydraulic engineering projects of Henry Philibert Gaspard Darcy (1803-1858), the ‘Father of Hydrogeology’, in Dijon before investigating the inter-relationships between tectonics, topography, palaeogeography, soil science and oenology in one of the greatest wine-growing areas in the world. The history of the region will be fundamental to our appreciation of the different industries that thrive today.

The excursion will leave Guildford by minibus on 13th April, returning via Epernay.

The estimated cost of £400 per person is based on two people room-sharing, and includes breakfast. Single rooms will be charged at cost.

If you prefer to travel by Eurostar to Dijon from London St Pancras, then you will need to book your own tickets via Paris.
