See on Scoop.it – Open Research & Learning

“Humans have been discovering fossils for thousands of years, and ancient societies have in fact recorded finding bones in the ground accidentally (a topic I am interested in writing more about for a future post!) Similarly, in the modern era, serendipity is often needed to find great fossils. Sometimes it is a farmer tilling a field, workers digging coal mines, or children out exploring; some lucky catalyzing event usually clues us in to an area’s fossil bearing possibilities.” from source:  http://blogs.plos.org/paleo/2013/06/17/how-to-find-a-fossil/
