Have you ever been interested in fossils? How about finding things you’ve never seen before?
David K. Elliott is a paleontologist. (He is also a professor in the Geology Program at Northern Arizona University.) He first discovered that he wanted to study bones when he was 14 or 15. “My family took long walks outdoors. I lived in the south east of England. At the age of 10, a teacher brought rocks and minerals to class and I thought it was interesting,” says Elliott.
