Palaeontology is the study of prehistoric life. Fossils record the history of life on Earth from fossil organic molecules to mighty dinosaurs. Understanding the rich array of life that has previously inhabited Earth has allowed us to understand the mechanisms of evolution that cannot be gleaned from living organisms alone. In this course you will learn about the process of evolution, and how to interpret the vast store of information preserved in the fossil record.
