Carboniferous Period (310 Million Years Ago)
This was an age of unparalleled life. From amphibians to the first reptiles; from simple ferns to huge lycopod trees,
there has never been an age like it before, or since. Nova Scotia has a site with one of the most
prolific fossil records of this age. Since Sir William Dawson first discovered it, paleontologists have flocked to the site
to study its wide variety of specimens. The area in question is, of course, the
Joggins Fossil Cliffs.
