“Scientists sealed off the fossils with gypsum for further restoration and research,” said Wang Xiaolin, a researcher in charge of the excavation.

"Most of the fossils were relatively intact, and this is favourable for assembly of a complete dinosaur skeleton. The largest piece of fossil, the remains of a humerus or upper arm bone, is over 60 cm," Wang said.

Fossils were first found in the region in 2010, and scientists have already unearthed several dinosaur remains from at least 20 fossil-bearing layers.
