A fossilized feathered dino/bird was found, as I recall, in China. I've seen mention of it so often in recent years that I will be surprised if "feathered dinosaur" isn't in Wikipedia.
If the meteor 65 million years ago hadn't wiped out the big dinos, the tiny mammals might not have come out of their underground shelters and we homo semi-sapiens might not now be polluting earth.
A fine 30-minute BBC TV documentary on these latest discoveries was shown a few days ago, and is being repeated today at 4.30 p.m. on BBC1.
