The plain that extends from Meze to Montagnac is the the largest field of dinosaur fossils in Europe. This is partly due to the fact that it exposes its sedimentary layers that were created at the time of the disappearance of the dinosaurs (Cretaceous Tertiary (KT)). Scientists understand the ecosystems and what existed there 70 million years ago.
