26 May 2004

 

 

Scientific explorations to discover seven million year old fossils of dinosaurs are to start in Maragheh, West Azarbaijan, for the first time after 26 years.

Maragheh fossil site is one of the richest fossil sites in the world, known for containing fossils of mammoths, which are rarely found in other fossil sites in the world.

According to the director of the environment organization of Maragheh, Ali Moshtaghpour, the site covers an area of 40,000 hectares, dating back to the fourth geological era, that is 7 million years ago.

During the previous excavations of the area numerous dinosaur fossil remains have been found – 2500 of which are now kept in various museums worldwide.
