The Bruce Peninsula has long been known for its unique geology. In association with the Royal Ontario Museum (ROM) and others, researchers have spent years excavating a fossil site near Wiarton, Ontario. Unique and bizarre creatures have been found recently that have not seen the light of day for about 400 million years. These findings expand our knowledge of what the Bruce may have looked like in ancient times.
