Trilobites. Next to ammonites, they are one of the most well-known fossil groups. Known throughout the world from thousands of species, from the tiny to the giant and from spiny to burrowing, no one can deny their fame. From the Cambrian to the Permian, trilobites radiated across the globe, allowing them to become excellent index fossils.

As a dinosaur lover growing up in New York State I often dreamed of digging up a dinosaur in my own back yard, and what child didn’t? I had always hoped that I might uncover a Tyrannosaurus skull, a new species, or at least a tooth! Unbeknownst to me at the time, however, was that the forces of nature had conspired against me and conspired against dinosaur preservation in my home state.
