This section of the composite Cleveland-Lloyd Quarry map illustrates the jumbled condition of bones, as they were at the time of burial. They appear as though the disarticulated parts of nearly six dozen dinosaurs had been stirred into a huge pot of mud and left to be found, unscrambled, and described by vertebrate paleontologists 147 million years later. Accurate maps and carefully written records are an essential part of dinosaur collecting and subsequent scientific research.
