Trilobites are unique and extinct group of arthropods. The last of these animals died about 200 million years ago, but we've learned a great deal about them. They are a very diverse group, and we've divided them up on the basis of time instead of taxonomy, because the taxonomy is not as useful. The drawers are in stratigraphic sequence, from youngest on top to the oldest on the bottom.
