After much perusing of atlases, gazeteers, Geonames, and various other
sources of data, I've become convinced that when discussing Mongolian
fossil sites, paleontologists must deliberately choose the name most
unlikely to reach the west in any other way <G>. Even allowing for
alternative spellings there are many sites that simply don't appear in any
of my sources. In the hope that some of my fellow list members can shed
some light on these sites, I'm posting this list. Ideally I'd like
latit/longit, but will settle for the nearest major city or landmark (I
want to put a dot on a map in the approximate region). This may not be of
much interest to the list in general, so perhaps replies should be made
Thanks in advance for any help
