Dinosaur fossils ‘found in India’

A geologist said yesterday his team has discovered what it believes are dinosaur fossils in the western Indian state of Gujarat that could be millions of years old, reports AFP. The team, of 10 mainly German and Indian archaeologists and researchers, dug up the fossils during excavations in Gujarat’s marshy coastal district of Kutch, Gaurav Chauhan said. “We have found three portions of hip bones of (a) dinosaur,” Chauhan, a geologist from Gujarat’s Kutch University and a member of the excavation team, told AFP. “We have been working on this site since (the) last 10 days or so,” he said. Chauhan said carbon-dating tests would need to be carried out to try to determine the age of the bones, while more examinations were needed to identify the type.
