If paleontologists find a steep slope, folded sedimentary rocks, full of fossils, what they can say about their interaction?
Rocks, forming in some places, differ substantially from the others. Their specific characteristics are called sedimentary facies. It happens today, just like millions of years ago. Rocks at different sites can have very different composition, even if their accumulation occurred in the same period of time. The same applies to those included in them the petrified spines.
Fossils in some places is often very different from that of fossils in other places due to the environmental conditions in which the sediments. Just like ocean fish, shellfish, and mammals that live at different depths, the fossils found in various sedimentary deposits of ancient seas, characteristic of the marine environment. The stratigraphic arrangement of the sedimentary rock often shows the species and a sediment gradient. Because ultimately everything falls to the bottom and covered by sediment, even species that lived at a great distance from each other (in depth), can be close to each other in the layer of sedimentary rocks.

Many interesting discoveries may be waiting for archaeologists, located in the famous `Valley
A group of Italian archaeologists unexpectedly discovered five tombs in the clean sand from the site of the temple built on the West Bank of the Nile during the reign of Amenhotep II (1427 – 1401 BC), reports Ahram Online.

These ancient burial places carved out of stone, although not as well preserved as in Luxor or Cairo, but quite interesting. They are excellent examples of texts written in hieroglyphs. In the text that they contain, is informed about a career its owners; they are also scenes from everyday life. Many of the tombs are linked; this is because one was added other cameras for relatives.
