Abstract: The fossils from Burgess Shale (British Columbia) and other exceptionally preserved Cambrian faunas have been the focus of intensive research in the last couple of decades. They reveal insights into a time and into a world where animals began to thrive more than 500 million years ago. They give palaeontologists a more complete picture of the diversity of the Middle Cambrian biota, where soft-bodied animals were surprisingly more numerous than shelly organisms. The Natural History Museum, London contains important palaeontological reference collections of worldwide significance. Among these were found and studied sixty-four specimens that came from the Burgess Shale site.
