Wonderful Life: The Burgess Shale and the Nature of History

Guest: Steven Jay Gould.

The Burgess Shale is a small limestone quarry in the Canadian Rockies. Seemingly unobtrusive, it in fact holds the remains of a 530-million-year-old sea and all the creatures that dwelled within it. Paleontologist Stephen Jay Gould joins Focus today to talk about the Burgess Shale and what it can tell us about evolution and natural history.
