I remember this when it was still being excavated from half-way up a 
cliff made almost entirely of clay.  One of the party nearly 
disappeared from sight at the lower reaches of the cliff due to the 
clays being heavily water logged.  Very dangerous cliff section.  I 
would like to see it now that it has been removed.

Were they still about at this time?  I don't have my Dinosauria to 
check on this.
