Fossils are essentially the remains of various creatures that lived thousands or millions of years ago. Once these animals died, they were hidden in layers and layers of earth. While their flesh would certainly rot away, the harder parts of their body, such as coverings, bones, etc, would remain undamaged in between the layers of debris. Currently, all those years later, those bones and also shells can still be located, intact, as those layers of sediment are again uncovered.
