Clues to Ancient Life
A non fiction book by

This book is intended for ages 7-14. Chalk and amber are two forms of fossils that provide us with clues as to how life has evolved, both in the oceans and on land. Fossils takes a fascinating look at how and where fossils formed, types of fossils, and the history of palaeontology. Remarkable photographs and diagrams give children clues about how Earth's plant and animal life looked millions of years ago. The topics include: the discovery of dinosaur fossils, and the evolution of dinosaurs from reptiles to distinction; the age and location of extraordinary fossil finds, such as the woolly mammoth and fossilised humans; the methods that scientists use to discover, unearth, and date fossils; the damaging effect that burning fossil fuels has on our environment, as well as the dangers of oil and gas leaks; and, how the Leakey family's many fossil and tool discoveries have contributed to the fields of palaeontology and anthropology.
