From Hades to the Machine Age (or 4.6 Billion Years in Less than an Hour)

20 August 2019

The earliest specimen in the BRLSI collection is a meteorite formed during the Hadean, at the very start of the Precambrian Eon. 

Matt Williams, BRLSI collections manager, takes us on a chronological tour of objects from the meteorite through to the start of the machine age, represented by a Colt Revolver made in 1852.
