Fossilized Man is a point of interest in Red Dead Redemption 2.


Located between the border of Roanoke Ridge and Grizzlies East, the Fossilized Man is one of many points of interest that the player can find scattered around the map.

To find the fossil, players should head to the railway tracks that cross into both Roanoke Ridge and Grizzlies East. Their destination will be on the lowest ledge closest to the tunnel.

Whoever this was has been here for some time; he may have been one of the early hunter-gatherers that inhabited the plains long ago.


  • The presence of a fossilized human skeleton in an exposed rock wall like this would be unlikely in the real world, as humans first begun settling the Americas around 15,000 to 10,000 years ago, while the fossil in question would be no younger than 10, 000 years.
  • This point of interest is similar to the Jesuit Missionary, with both of them being the remains of long-dead humans. The only difference is their age, as the missionary's demise was vastly more recent.
