Our first Fossil-Lagerstätte takes us to New York where a seemingly unremarkable layer of shale shelters a remarkable group of fossils; pyritized trilobites.  Uncover the truth of how these golden critters formed and why one man searched for 8 years of his life looking for them.

The theme song, "Fossils," and interlude "Aquarium" by Saint-Saëns and "Gymnopédie" by Satie were provided by MusOpen.
