Virginia is home to some of the best fossil collecting sites in the United States. Millions of years ago, Virginia was covered in a shallow sea that was teeming with life, leaving behind prolific fossil beds. Today, you can find the remains of those ancient life forms in locations all across the state, particularly in state parks along the coast.
Having been completely submerged by a vast, but shallow inland sea five hundred million years ago, the chimneys themselves are made up of numerous layers of compacted sediment. Within some of these layers, the fossilized remains of the sea creatures that once thrived here can be found.
