This is the epic story of life on Earth, uniquely retold through some of the most significant fossils ever found.

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.
