|The beach at Maungahouanga,
66 million years ago

New Zealand's dinosaur fossils have all been found, mixed
with those of marine reptiles, in the sediments of what was
once a shallow bay or estuary. In this cover to my book on
the subject, I visualise the beach and bay as it may have
appeared on a hot day 66 million years ago.
