At the present time when we are hearing so much about the Panama canal we almost forget that there are other important constructions of this kind in other parts of the world. Of the famous canals there is one about which little mention appears to be made. This is the Corinth ship canal in Greece. It is of special geological interest on account of the fact that it gives a superb cross-section of a sea-beach dating from middle Tertiary times, and continuing to the present time.
