Here are the locations of all five ancient fossil for the ‘Paleontological Investigation in The Chasm’ world quest in Genshin Impact.
After the version 2.6 update of Genshin Impact, players are finding a lot of quests and activities in the game. The Ancient Fossils are the remains of some animals that can be found in The Chasm: Underground Mines. According to Khedive, a researcher from Sumeru, these fossils are perfectly preserved. He thinks that all these fossils were buried together because of an accident that happened a long time ago.
Players need to take pictures of all five ancient fossils around the underground mines of the Chasm and give them to Khedive to complete the quest. Talk to Khedive first to get the quest. This requires a Level 6 Lumenstone Adjuvant to complete.
Here are all five locations of ancient fossils in the lower level of the Chasm.
