to compare structures in the fossil with homologous structures in other vertebrates.

to look for vestigial structures in the fossil and compare them with functioning structures in living organisms.

to examine the fossil for evidence of the stages of embryological development of the animal to compare to development of living animals.

to determine the mineral content of the fossil and compare it with that of other fossils.

Is it the first one?
