Excerpt

The rocks of Finland are of the oldest geological formation known. In the rocks in the neighbourhood of Tampere geologists have found traces of life that flourished more than 1 400 million years ago. But over and over again glacial periods have caught Finland in their chilling embrace; it is known that the re-awakening of nature in Finland only began 10 000 years ago, after the last glacial period. It is the ancient rock that forms Finnish scenery and gives it its character.
