113 million years ago. To be inspired from the past to develop future innovations.
Fossils are formed in a number of different ways, but most are formed when a plant or animal dies in a watery environment and is buried in mud and silt. Soft tissues quickly decompose leaving the hard bones or shells behind.
Fossils give scientists clues as to what the Earth was like millions of years ago. We can use them and determine how organisms alive today evolved.
This project allowed us to study the structure of brachiopod, bivalve, crinoid stem and ammonite fossils, by using microcospic views and anatomic drawings.
