Fossil Forest China

10 Aug 2019

Gary sent in the link to ... 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
