  • STEP ONE
  • Collapse & Die, Perferably Painlessly.   Experts say that it’s really a question of maintaining a good condition of the body after death – long enough to be buried under sediment  and then altered physically and chemically deep underground to become a fossil. In unintentional fossilization, the animal will, over time, die of natural causes. GOOD LUCK!
  • STEP TWO
  • Make sure you have found a nice plot to die in. This includes a place that isn't that prone to natural disasters and has a source of water.
  • STEP THREE
  • The water level Rises and sediment buries the bones and footprints. 
  • X 10,000 Years
  • STEP FOUR
  • A Thick Sequence of Sediments Accumulates over the bones; gradually the bones fossilize.
  • STEP FOUR
  • Over time, your flesh will slowly rot away and the organs will slowly deteriorate until only your bones remain.
  • STEP FIVE
  • Erosion Exposes the Layer of Strata, Exposing the Bones and Footprints
  • Archeological Excavation Report Dr.Saanvi Swarup - From: Saanvi.Swarup@salkschool.org - Unsubscribe [To Me]             Me and my team of archaeologists have found our research on fossils very enlightning. We learned that the process of fossil formation is, the animal collapses and dies, the flesh rots away, the water level rises; sediment buries the bones and footprints, a thick sequence of sediments accumulates over the bones; gradually the bones fossilize, and finally, erosion exposes the layer of strata containing the bones and footprints.
