Παλιός / Palæos - The story of Life before Man.
What is palæontology? Literally, the world translates from Greek as old life discourse. But this is only the crudest way of stating it. Palæontology is unravelling the æons-long story of Life on the planet Earth, from the earliest monera to the endless forms most beautiful we have now, and of the various long-dead offshoots that still inspire today. In a single phrase, it is history before any men existed to write it.
