    Even if you don't like evolution, these are really beautiful scans of skulls. Take a look at the skull of this animal: http://www.ctlab.geo.utexas.edu/imagefolio/paleo/mammals/stills/thrinW.html

    Here, you can get movies of the skull in rotation to see all the features. http://www.utexas.edu/cc/vislab/gallery/Thrinaxodon/

    Then take a look at that of a placental mammal: http://www.ctlab.geo.utexas.edu/imagefolio/paleo/mammals/stills/posW.html

    I was also reading this week this one on the Yellowstone fossil forest -- really well done and information-packed: http://origins.swau.edu/papers/dinos/yellowstone/default.html

    I also enjoyed this one recently called "Mammal Melee" from the Scientific American website: http://www.sciam.com/2000/0100issue/0100scicit2.html

    re are some interesting bits regarding how things were initially dated: http://www.ucmp.berkeley.edu/cambrian/cambstrat.html -- Stratigraphic boundaries are determined by the occurences of fossils.

    As you will learn, rocks that contain fossils are much easier to interpret chronologically than rocks
    without fossils. http://www.cce.umn.edu/dis/courses/GEO1002_4503_03.www/
