Welcome to Triloblog. This site is intended to be a celebration of an amazingly diverse and truly ancient group of creatures known as trilobites. Though they have been extinct for many millions of years, their preserved remains have excited humans since their discovery.
Here we will look into the phenomena created by our emerging understanding of what trilobites mean as symbols of deep time and amazing biological success. We will also examine their place in art and culture, hopefully gaining an understanding of why a creature that disappeared 250 million years ago can can have a profound effect on the human psyche.
