About

Hello!

I’m Emma and between the hours of 9-5 I’m a vertebrate palaeontologist researching prehistoric animals that aren’t dinosaurs (yes, there is such a thing!). After completing degrees in Zoology and Taxonomy I decided to jump back 300 million years or so and leave the world of the fluffy for the world of the fossilised. My research currently focusses on looking at diversity patterns during the Paleozoic, a period when tetrapods were the ones who were the cool kids on the block.

Outside (and sometimes inside) of these hours I like to travel, explore museums, and experience new culinary delights. This blog has become a collection of all kinds of everything related to these topics, particularly those of the palaeo variety (hence the name of course!). I do hope you find something that tickles your fancy here and perhaps even stick around to hear more!

DISCLAIMER: Sorry to disappoint but this is not a site about how you should eat as a hunter-gatherer caveman would. For more information on that, I recommend this article)
