As a resident of Guilford, I have grown fond of the crescent shaped feature located off the coast of Guilford. Faulkner’s Island, pictured above, is a drumlin – a geological feature formed by receding glacier activity. The word drumlin originates from the Gaelic word for “rounded hill or little ridge” due to the inverted spoon shape of the feature. Luckily, we do not have to travel to Scotland to see drumlins, as they are located throughout North America.
Below is an excellent video depicting the creation of a drumlin.
