From Discovery News comes a report from Italy that a dinosaur skull dating from about 190 million years ago has been found been found in the Cathedral of St. Ambrose in Vigevano, 20 miles from Milan.
The dinosaur was discovered in the pink, marble slabs that support the balustrade by Andrea Tintori, a paleontologist from the University of Milan. The marble was mined from Mount San Giorgio, a Unesco World Heritage Site where numerous fossils have been found and cut into slabs that were used around the cathedral. More slices of the skull can be seen at St. Ambrose and Dr. Tintori is hoping to solve the mystery of what type of dinosaur the skull is from by building a three-dimensional reconstruction of the remains.
