The Nature of Things

Stories from a Natural History Museum

Hrsg.  Anita Hermannstädter, Ina Heumann und Kerstin Pannhorst
Sofort lieferbar. Erschienen November 2020

Medieval meteorites, giant dinosaur skeletons, frogs in alcohol and DNA samples from bats. These are just some of the 30 million things the Museum für Naturkunde Berlin holds in its collections.

Each of them has a story to tell – of expeditions and accidental finds, of insights gained and mistakes made. They’ll take you on a journey from the depths of the oceans, around the Earth and up into outer space. Along the way, you’ll meet explorers, scientists and artists and learn astonishing things about the nature of our world. With contributions from Mark Benecke, Renate Künast, Yoko Tawada, Johannes Vogel, Hanns Zischler and many more.
