Henry Gee is a paleontologist, senior editor at Nature and the author of several books, including Jacob’s Ladder, In Search of Deep Time, The Science of Middle-earth, and The Accidental Species. Paleontology lies on the border between biology and geology but differs from archaeology in that it excludes the study of anatomically modern humans.
He has appeared on BBC television and radio and NPR's All Things Considered and has written for The Guardian, The Times, and BBC Focus. He lives in Cromer, Norfolk, England, with his family and numerous pets. He is the author of the forthcoming book, A Very Short History of Life on Earth: 4.6 Billion Years in 12 Pithy Chapters.
