This hall represents the time elapsed from the formation of the Earth, some 4,500 million years ago, up to the end of the Palaeozoic Era, 252 million years ago.
Among other aspects are the first organisms populating the Earth, indications to understand what a fossil is, how it is formed and the methods to determine its age.
This space also includes a classification of the vertebrates and their ancestral relations.
Life commenced on Earth some 3,500 million years ago; since then our planet has suffered important changes allowing for some forms of life to develop and diversify, while harming others and leading to their extinction in many cases.
This extinction, occurring towards the end of the Palaeozoic, was the most devastating as 96% of the organisms disappeared.
