A fossil is the mineralized or otherwise preserved remains or traces of animals, plants, and other organisms. Paleontology and micropaleontology are academic disciplines which depend on the study of fossils.
Derogatory usage Edit
Someone could be called a "fossil" figuratively (often as an insult) if said person was extremely old or the views they held were seen as archaic. Chief Miles O'Brien inferred that Doctor Julian Bashir considered him a "fossil" when he suggested that O'Brien preferred "old style" racquetball rules. (DS9: "Rivals")
