    Description
    The fossil discoveries that changed our understanding of the world are brought to life in this fascinating and beautifully illustrated book.

    Over the last 200 years the discovery of fossils has revolutionised our relationship with nature, our understanding of evolution and the story of the Earth.

    Fossils - the remains of once-living organisms - from seashells to dinosaur bones, have fascinated us for thousands of years. Early Cro-magnon man collected them and placed them as treasured objects in tombs with the dead.

    This book tells the stories of the discoveries that unlocked the secrets of the past. Told in the order in which the finds were located, the stories take us on an archaeological journey. Within 100 years we came to understand that we inhabited a fragile and unpredictable world where whole species dominate and are then wiped out. Each fossil discovery included is a fascinating story in its own right.
