A history of paleontology in China

Fossils were discovered early in human history, and their meaning has been interpreted in various ways by Chinese naturalists for over 2000 years. More recently paleontology in China has blossomed into a strong research enterprise, thanks to an enriched intellectual atmosphere, the energy of a promising economy, and the groundwork laid by generations of scientists.

In July 1831, on his first field season as a solo geologist, Murchison explored the Wye Valley. Retrospectively, over his diary entry for one of the locations we shall visit, he wrote “This was the first true Silurian”.
