Every egg there has ever been is an emblem of survival. Yet the evolution of the animal egg is the dramatic subplot missing in many accounts of how life on Earth came to be. In this special event at the Grant Museum of Zoology, science writer and broadcaster Jules Howard examines the mind-bending journey that eggs have been on, from the churning coastlines of the Cambrian Period and Carboniferous coal forests, where insects were stirring, to the end of the age of dinosaurs when live-birthing mammals began their modern rise to power.

Whether they belong to birds, insects, mammals or millipedes, animal eggs are objects shaped by their ecology, forged by mass extinctions, honed by natural selection to near-perfection. Finally, the epic story of their role in the story of life can be told.

Jules Howard is a zoological correspondent, science writer and broadcaster, whose recent book, Wonderdog, won the 2022 Barker Book Prize for non-fiction. He writes on a host of topics relating to zoology, ecology and wildlife conservation and appears regularly in BBC Science Focus magazine and on radio and TV, including BBC Breakfast and Radio 4's Nature Table and The Ultimate Choice.
