The glacial deposits here are of interests in the history of geology Esmark found as far back as 1824 at this place proofs\"that the Norwegian moun- tains have been covered with ice to the sea, and that consequently the sea itself had been a glacial sea\". The glacial deposits are dotted on the map p.96. The next drawing shows the headland seen from a point to the NW of the church of Fossan. On the map an esker is marked. The esker is narrow ridge consisting of rolled gravel. To the E of it is an uncultivated plain of sand and gravel 30 m above the sea. A typical end-moraine dams in the Haukeli lake, which at present has its outlet at the northern end. The uppermost part of the moraine was found to be 85 m above the sea (not 47 m as given in the (Norwegian text) and about 21 m above the lake. On the picture p.94 H marks the Haukeli lake. In the foreground the plain is to the right and the moraine to the left. A small remnant of another moraine is seen in the distance at x.
