Abstract
The Twin Cities is a major urban area hundreds of miles from the nearest ocean. It is, nevertheless, an excellent place to collect seashells. This is because the area was submerged by continental seas millions of years ago, and was inhabited by marine animals whose fossil shells remain in the bedrock of this area. This guide will help you find, identify, and understand some of these fossils. Keep in mind, this is meant to be only a brief overview of fossils in Minnesota. More complete fossil guides are available.
