Gary sent in the link to www.independent.co.uk/news/world/asia/fossil-forest-asia-devonian-period... ... the oldest fossil forest in Asia (or the oldest until an older one is uncovered). It goes back to a remote geological period, the Devonian. It was discovered in the walls of a clay quarry in China and is made up of 250,000 square meteres of fossilised lycopsid trees. Other Devonian forests are known from North America and Norway. See https://doi.org/10.1016/j.cub.2019.06.053
