Published on September 1st, 2009 | by Admin


Palaeontologists are describing Angola as a “museum in the ground”.

“Angola is the final frontier for palaeontology. Due to the war, there has been little research carried out… but now we are getting in finally and there is so much to find.

“In some areas there are literally fossils sticking out of the rocks, it is like a museum in the ground.”
