Scientists from the Chinese Academy of Sciences have announced the discovery of perhaps the largest collection of dinosaur bones ever excavated. They report having unearthed so far over 7,600 bones--3,000 from a single pit and the rest from a number of sites nearby in the Shandong province. Most of the bones are from the late Cretaceous period, which could lead to significant insights regarding the extinction of the dinosaurs. Even more bones are expected to be found when excavation resumes this spring.

Karen Ann Gajewski is a contributing editor to the Humanist and a documentation project coordinator.
