What is palæontology? Literally, the world translates from Greek as old life discourse- but this is only the crudest way of stating it. Palæontology is unraveling the æons-long story of life on the planet Earth, from the earliest monera to the endless forms we have now, including humans, and of the various long-dead offshoots that still inspire today.
