Let's Start

Geological Time Scale is the calendar of earth's past history. History of the earth has been divided into a number of major divisions called eras. The eras are subdivided into periods that are further divided into epochs. The age of the earth is about 4600 million years and life first originated about a hundred million years ago. By studying the fossils photo occurring during strata of rocks, geologists are able to reconstruct the time and course of evolutionary change. So take the Geological Time Scale quiz and no more about the Geological Time Scale.
