Digging and fossils excavation, restauration, fossils collection

Our story with Fossils started a long time ago, thanks to our grandfather George. One day, he accidentally discovered a fossil fish which led him to understand that his country and his mountains in particular were favored by destiny. Long before the Byzantines, the Romans and even the Phoenicians, Lebanon in general and the Byblos district in particular, were already a home to a marvel. A marvel not built by humans though, but by nature. His region, almost unknown, was soon to be so no more. This small area was soon to gain not in kilometers but in reputation.
Hence, he soon acquired the habit of climbing up and down the nearby hills of his hometown Ehmej with elementary tools in quest of fossils.
