Abundance of dinosaur footprints discovered in England - daily science news

A rich collection of dinosaur footprints was recently discovered in East Sussex, UK. Containing more than 85 well-preserved footprints, the site is the most diverse and detailed from the Cretaceous period in the UK.

The prints date between 145 and 100 million years ago. Their size varies between 2 and 60 cm and they belong to several species of dinosaurs.

The footprints can help scientists learn more about the structure of dinosaur communities that lived there. Since fossils are rare, the footprints can provide useful information to fill in the gaps in what we know.
