Fossils are the lithified remains or traces of prehistoric animals and plants. The significance of fossils for our understanding of both geological and biological evolution was first fully understood in the late 17th century. The pictures here illustrate one of the first fossils ever described in Norway. Reproduced after a drawing by the vicar Hans Strøm (1784).
