Trove of Dinosaur Fossils Found in
          Remote China

                        

          By MALCOLM W. BROWNE

               HILADELPHIA -- An international team of paleontologists
               announced on Thursday that a fabulous trove of dinosaur
fossils
          had been discovered in a remote region of northeast China. 

          Hundreds of major finds at the site include the first
fossilized internal
          organs of dinosaurs ever seen, and the first fossil of a
dinosaur containing
          a mammal it had just eaten. 

          Many of the specimens excavated from the site seem to bear on
the
          question of kinship between dinosaurs and birds, although the
wealth of
          enigmatic fossils seems more likely at this stage to inflame
debates over
          the origin of birds than to settle them.
