1808: CARL BERNHARD VON COTTA is born at Zillbach, Saxe-Weimar-Eisnach (now
Germany).  Following study at his father's forestry academy and at the
Freiberg Bergakademie, the mining school made famous by Werner, Cotta will
become professor of geognosy and paleontology at the Bergakademie in 1842.
He will travel extensively throughout Europe on geological expeditions, and
will publish a genetic system of petrography in 1866, some elements of which
remain in use today.
