Triceratops bonebeds

 Can anyone verify for me that Triceratops bonebeds or Triceratops-dominated
bonebeds exist? I know that some areas in Wyoming have produced large
numbers of skulls, etc, but nowhere have I seen or heard whether these are
isolated occurrences or from bonebeds. Most ceratopsian taxa are known from
bonebeds, so why not Triceratops?
