This interactive asks you to use your knowledge of relative dating. Help us work out the relative ages of the layers of sedimentary rocks.
You need to work out the order in which rocks were formed, from youngest to oldest. Remember that younger sedimentary rocks lie on top of older ones and were horizontal when formed.
It looks as though one group of layers was tilted and eroded away before new rocks were formed on top.
Move your mouse over one of the geologist’s hammers. This was the last layer to be formed before the rocks tilted.
