Summary
This is the epic story of life on Earth, uniquely retold through some of the most significant fossils ever found. A History of Life in 100 Fossils travels through 3.5 billion years of Earth's history and across all seven continents, showcasing the unusual and wonderful forms of life that have played a pivotal role in our evolutionary past. Ancient Australian microbes reveal the very first signs of life on Earth, tiny Triassic snails demonstrate the effects of past mass extinctions, and the remains of our own ancestors tell us where we came from. 'A fantastic pictorial tour of 3.5 billion years of life on Earth.' - John Pickrell, Australian Geographic 'It is a blessing that we have fossils like the ones illustrated here. These are the classics.' - Nature journal
