Dinosaur Footprints in Hastings

19 Dec 2018

The Sussex seaside and fishing town of Hastings is in the news. The mudstone and sandstone cliffs have yielded a dinosaur bonanza - after bad weather early in 2018. These cliffs have previously yielded an Iguanadon fossil back in 1825 and dinosaur brain tissue in 2016. We now have an extensive number of dinosaur footprints - set in mud and preserved so well that skin, scales, and claws, can clearly be seen in the imprints.
