Fact of the Day: Ordovician

The Ordovician geoglical period was one of earliest on Earth, and was named by Charles Lapworth after the Celtic tribe called the Ordovices. He had discovered that layers of rock were not from either the Cambrian or Silurian era. His discovery of the era was located in the former homeland of the Ordovices.
