Animal life.
Many prehistoric plant and animal fossils have been
found in sedimentary rock, particles of rock that have
broken off from larger pieces of rock and have been
carried away and made even smaller by the grinding
of ice, water or wind. The fossilized remains of
prehistoric plants and animals have also been founds
trapped in ice, tar, peat and even in amber, which is
hardened tree sap.
Palaeontology, they study of fossils, began in England
in the late 17th century.
The analysis of fossils and rocks helps
palaeontologists understand the history and
developments of earth’s life forms and major
geographic events.
