    Fr. Skehan, a.k.a. Rocky, pulled out a booklet he'd written in called Puddingstone, Drumlins, and Ancient Volcanoes. He opened it to a map of Boston as it appeared when the first English settlers arrived in , superimposed on a modern-day street map. In the Palmyra area, most of the drumlins consist of a mix of stratified or layered gravels and sands. However, near the Palmyra hill is one today named Miners Hill, which is an exception: it is predominately formed of clay — something that might well have played an important role in the making of Moroni’s stone hill will be discussed shortly.

A series of partially drowned drumlins forms the backbone of the inner islands within Boston Harbor. The shoreline of these rounded glacial deposits is composed of actively retreating bluffs formed by continual wave attack. Comparisons of bluffs reveal variability in their height and lateral extent, as well as in the dominant mechanism causing their retreat.

Two processes are responsible for. The most important volcanoes, however, were active about million years ago. The good news is that they will not erupt again.

The best preserved of these ancient volcanoes is Arthur’s Seat. As we shall see, erosion has dug deep into the heart of the volcano.

Often drumlins can be found in swarms or large groupings of multiple drumlins. From an aerial view drumlins are shaped like a tear drop with a rounded end and a tapered end, which points in the direction of glacial advance.

Drumlins can only be found behind the end moraines of the glaciers that created them. The other type of hill is a kame.
