Description / A History of Life in 100 Fossils

This is the epic story of life on Earth, uniquely retold through some of the most significant fossils ever found – each one beautifully illustrated with photographs.

The book travels through 3.5 billion years of Earth’s history and across all seven continents, showcasing the unusual and wonderful creatures that have played a pivotal role in our evolutionary past. Creatures such as microbe-like structures in Australian rocks hinting at early life on Earth and tiny Triassic snails demonstrating the effects of past mass extinctions.

The fossils have been selected from the renowned collections of our very own Museum and the Smithsonian Institution in Washington, USA.
