Mazon Creek fossils

300 million years old

The Mazon Creek fossils are found on the banks of the Mazon River, also known as Mazon Creek, in the United States. The fossils from this region are about 300 million years old (Carboniferous). Around this time, the sea level was high compared with the current sea level. Large parts of Europa and America were flooded and consisted were marshes thrived. The earth also looked very different. In the north was the continent Euramerica consisting of Europe and America. In the south lays the continent Gondwana consisting of Australia, Africa, and South America. The plants that we found as fossils in the Mazon Creek have probably lived Euramerica in a river delta near the equator. The fossils were well preserved because they were quickly covered with thick layer of sand.
