110 million years old, footprints of the last dinosaur found in Britain


London: Footprints of at least six different species of the last dinosaurs dating back to 110 million years ago have been found on the soil of Kent in Britain. Researchers have claimed this in a new report. A curator at the Hastings Museum and Art Gallery and a scientist at the University of Portsmouth have discovered the footprints of the last dinosaurs in Britain.

These footprints have been found on coastal areas and rocks at Folkestone, Kent. Here new fossils are discovered continuously due to the impact of rocks and coastal waters due to stormy conditions. David Martil, professor of paleontology at the University of Portsmouth, said: “This is the first time these footprints have been found on a rocky surface called the ‘Folkestone Formation’ and it is a very important discovery because these dinosaurs were the last in the country before extinction.” Will be.” “They were walking close to where the White Rocks of Dover are now.


Next time you go sailing and see these magnificent rocks, just imagine their presence nearby.” The related report is published in this week’s issue of the journal Proceedings of the Geologists’ Association. Some dinosaur footprints are also on display at the Folkestone Museum. Its main author is Philip Headland, a curator with the Hastings Museum and Art Gallery.
