Museum of the Rockies hosts international fossil conference
BOZEMAN, Mont. -

Over 60 researchers from all around the world, presented their findings at Museum of the Rockies for the second International Symposium on Paleohistology.

Scientists of Paleohistology study microscopic structures that are preserved in the fossilized remains of dinosaurs, ancient mammals, birds and reptiles.

NBC Montana got a tour of the lab where scientists study these remains.

Researches tell us after they gather the bones, the next step is to piece them together like a puzzle. They tell us it can take weeks of dusting through bone matter and rock.
 
The International Symposium on Paleohistology will run until Saturday July 20th at the Museum of the Rockies
