How old are fossils?

 Q:   Ask a Question about How old are fossils?       
How old are fossils? Ancient history has been divided up into eras, which are periods of time identified by the fossilized forms of life from that period. The oldest era, called the Paleozoic, contains fossils ranging from many primitive life forms up to some of the earliest land-dwelling animals.

During this era, fishes, amphibians and early reptiles appeared. The Mesozoic era was the age of giant reptiles, when dinosaurs stalked the world.

The Cenozoic era in which we still live is the age of mammals and birds. AII fossils can be placed in these eras, which are subdivided further into smaller periods.

The characteristic fossils found in different periods measure geological time.

Most primitive organisms lived in the Paleozoic Period, dinosaurs predominated in the Mesozoic Period, and modern life forms such as mammals and birds developed and thrived in the Cenozoic Period.
