All about fossils

Millions of years, thousands of species, each example completely unique

One of the most powerful things you can do is hold a 500 million-year-old fossil in your hands and imagine what life was like

Collecting and learning about fossils is fun and interesting, especially when you can find real-life fossils near your home or whilst travelling. Fossils show how animals used to look, where they lived, and even why they may have become extinct.
