Fossils are literally the remains of various creatures that lived thousands or countless years ago. As soon as these creatures passed away, they were buried in layers and also layers of earth. While their flesh would certainly rot away, the tougher parts of their body, such as coverings, bones, etc, would stay undamaged in between the layers of debris. Now, all those years later, those bones as well as shells can still be located, intact, as those layers of sediment are again discovered.
