Fossils are the impressions left in the rock from the remains of extinct, prehistoric plants and animals that lived many millions of years ago. They may be traces or impressions of a plant or animal, or completely fossilised bones and skeletons, like those of the Dinosaurs.
Ammonites, were extremely abundant during the Jurassic period (from 206 to 144 million years ago) and consisted of a coiled shell, with a fleshy ‘squid-like’ body protruding from the opening. The animal could partly retreat into the shell if it was attacked by a predator.
