The hope for this fossil collection is that is displays some of the variety of the history of life, allowing appreciation the diversity of different groups.

It should not be used as a checklist of things to learn for the 1A Earth Sciences exam, but rather to compliment knowledge gained in the lectures and practicals.

It is also hoped that the general public will gain some value from this collection. A broad overview of some of the major groups of invertebrate fossils, showing a broad range of characters, should be of some interest and use to the casual palaeontologist.
