Fossil auction brings prehistoric world to life, Dec. 26

There may not be a written record of Earth’s prehistoric times, but there are some fascinating tangible clues that tell the story of who and what inhabited the planet many millennia ago. All you have to do is hold a fossil or other naturally preserved specimen from ages past to realize there’s only one degree of separation between yourself and a living, breathing primordial creature. Such objects are best obtained from experts, such as those who curated Jasper52’s Dec. 27 auction.
