It is only about the size of an A5 postcard when folded, but the mini wallbook tells the complete story of life on Earth from the formation of the planet to the latest breakthroughs in evolutionary science.

On one side, a beautifully illustrated 4.5-billion-year timeline cleverly links subjects from asteroids to algae.

Streams of colour representing the land, sea and sky act as a backdrop to the major events of natural history.

Delve deeper with the magnifier and test your knowledge with the 100-question multiple-choice quiz found on the reverse. Check how you did with the answers found in the timeline.
