Dinosaur Footprints in Birjand

 

News Category: Prehistory

 30 July 2000

 

 

Forty footprints of dinosaurs, were discovered on the sedimentary rocks in the north of the city of Birjand. 

 

These footprints belong to about 50 million years ago Ali Hassandbady the leader of the archeological group told reporters.

 

“This area was swampy on that time and rocks had plenty of organic materials. The erosion of the upper layer caused the footprints to surf", Hassandbady expressed.

 

He stated that "These footprints belong to the third eon of geology and indicates that this area was suitable for the movement of dinosaurs”.

 

Preliminary studies show a complete similarity between the footprints. They are elliptical and their size is about 42x26 to 12x8 centimeter. Dinosaurs moved in groups and their direction of movement was east to west. The species of the dinosaurs has not yet determined.
