Palaeopoems is a project that brings together the world’s palaeontology poetry in one place for the first time. We seek out poetry by real palaeontologists and share them with short biographies of the authors, natural history context, and original artwork.

Since palaeontologists have existed, there have also been palaeopoems! Scientists so moved by the natural wonders they study that they’ve written poetry about it. Many of these poems have been obscured by history, and they’ve never been collected in one place (until now!). By searching books, letters, archives, and other unexpected sources, Palaeopoems spanning over 100 years of palaeontological history have been compiled here for the first time, along with the stories of how they came to be.
