The Cambrian period is the first period of the Paleozoic era which spanned the period of time between 541 and 485 million years ago.

In this period there was a rapid expansion in evolution in an event known as "Cambrian Explosion”, At which point the greatest number of creatures evolved in a single period in the history of the earth.

Plants like algae evolved, and the fauna was dominated by armored arthropods such as trilobites. In addition, it is the moment in which almost all the marine edges evolved.

During the Cambrian period the supercontinent Pannotia began to break up, and most of the continental masses were later reunited in Gondwana.

After studying History at the University and after many previous tests, Red Historia was born, a project that emerged as a means of dissemination where you can find the most important news about archeology, history and humanities, as well as articles of interest, curiosities and much more. In short, a meeting point for everyone where they can share information and continue learning.
