Fossil stone Egg
Fossils are fascinating because they display natural impressions and traces of creatures that existed many millions of years ago.
By the Rennaissance, the study of fossils by Robert Hooke led to the knowledge that fossils were actually the remains of once living organisms. During the eighteenth century, the foundation of the sciences of geology and paleontology began.
Fossils are a wonderful reminder that the world is constantly changing and that numerous organisms have appeared and disappeared along the way of our geological past.
