— Researchers have recently determined that a "Triassic" find at UNC-Chapel Hill is a big one.

The bones were found by some students in a Durham quarry seven years ago. The find reportedly includes large parts of the skeletons of four animals and a few pieces of two others, which are new species of dinosaur.

All are from the Triassic period, the time before there was even an Atlantic Ocean.
