Imagine the look on a Victorian fossil hunter's face if he ever saw his carefully collected fossil transformed into a 3-D image.

For two centuries, palaeontologists have tried, with manual tools and patience, to improve the way fossils can be viewed and studied. Discover how scientists are able to use cutting edge technology to bring ancient species to life in ways our predecessors could have only dreamed of. Step back in time 312 million years and see life-like images of animals that roamed the forest floors of Europe and North America.
