So what exactly is a fossil?

Fossils are clues to history and life beyond our own, giving us a glimpse of what things were like back when no humans roamed the Earth. Fossils are the preserved remains or traces of organisms that lived in the past. Hence, that leaves us with two types of fossils: trace and body. Body refers to the actual remains and trace refers to evidence of an organism being there (tracks, footprints, etc.) They come in all types and in different sizes, reflecting the diversity of the organisms that lived on the Earth. Now welcome to and enjoy your journey exploring the history of the Earth by traversing time.
