Old Bones – New Insights

Physics has joined palaeontology at the ANU using 3D X-ray scanning to reveal new evidence of early vertibrae evolution. Over the past 40 years the Wee Jasper area has yielded fossil treasures which now showcase a once diverse coral reef – 400 million years ago. You are invited to visit rare fossils from the ANU collection showcasing the application of cutting edge micro-tomographic scanning to Palaeobiology. Many of these unique specimens are on show for the first time and are central to developing an understanding of the evolution of vertebrate life.
