Collecting fossils is a popular pastime that offers an exciting glimpse of life before man while at the same time takes you to some of the most beautiful landscapes and coastlines.

This practical introductory guide provides general fossil identifications with information on their geological age and distribution. Additionally, it also covers some of the aspects involved in the process of fossilization and how to collect fossils.

Major groups of fossils are illustrated and some of the important anatomical features to keep in mind when identifying them are shown and explained.
