COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — A free fossil tour of the Ohio Statehouse is being offered as part of Earth Science Week.
The Oct. 11 event will be led by officials from the Orton Geological Museum at Ohio State University and the Ohio Department of Natural Resources' geological survey division.
The Statehouse is constructed of a Middle Devonian-age rock called Columbus Limestone, which formed the sandy bottom of a tropical ocean that covered the state 400 million years ago. Fossils of the ocean's abundant marine life can be seen throughout the Capitol Square complex that centers on the Statehouse.
