Notes
Both the
Giant's Causeway, on the north East coast of Ireland, and Fingal's
Cave, on the island of Staffa in the Inner Hebrides of Scotland,
were formed during the Paleogene period. Both arose from the same
flow of lava, when highly fluid molten basalt intruded through the
chalk beds to form an extensive lava plateau. The rapid cooling of
the lava resulted in contraction. While contraction in the vertical
direction reduced the thickness of the flow, horizontal contraction
could only be accommodated by cracking throughout. The extensive
fracture network resulted in the distinctive and magnificent
columns we see today.
Considered one of the leading painters from Belluno of the second
half of 18th century, Antonio di Bittio travelled to England circa
1749. He is known to have been in Ireland in 1772, where he is
recorded as being in the service of Frederick Hervey, 4th Earl of
Bristol and Bishop of Derry.
