What is a fossil?
Category:Science Popularization

When most people think of fossils they think of dinosaur skeletons and large bones, but there are many different types of fossils to be found. Fossils are the preserved remains of once living animals or plants. People have been finding fossils in rocks for thousands of years, but until quite recently they didn't understand what they were. Today we recognise that the fossils we find in rocks represent the ancestors of the animals and plants that are alive today.
