This is is a trilobito-centric view of the world, unravelling the history of the crustacean-like animals which dominated the seas for three hundred million years. These arthropods witnessed continents move, they survived ice ages and volcanic eruptions, evolving and adapting to their environment.
This is is a trilobito-centric view of the world, unravelling the history of the crustacean-like animals which dominated the seas for three hundred million years. These arthropods witnessed continents move, mountain chains elevated and eroded; they survived ice ages and volcanic eruptions, evolving and adapting to their environment. They watched through their crystal eyes whilst life evolved. Their own evolution calibrated geological time itself.

Praise for LIFE: AN UNAUTHORISED BIOGRAPHY: 'Read this book because it is, indeed, the best natural history of the first four billion years of life on earth.'

Anyone who wants to understand how we came to be here on earth, 4 000 000 000 years after life began, should read this sparkling book.' Maggie Gee, Daily Telegraph The tale of life needs constantly retelling. Thank some happy accident of history that we have Fortey to tell it to us anew.' Ted Nield, New Scientist
