Abstract:
Fossils and petrified wood are abundant in North Carolina's coastal plain. They range in age from 10,000 years to more than 600 million years old. Almost every major river and stream east of I-95 to the coast has exposures where fossils can be found. The state's most famous fossil site is a huge marl pit near Aurora in Beaufort County. The pit is internationally known for the huge shark teeth discovered there.
