Saurian skeleton findings excited sensation again recently, prehistorical events in and around Tambach-Dietharz are famous. The discovery of the most significant saurian habitat beyond the USA, in the Bromacker field in Tambach-Dietharz, succeeded in 1974 to the Gothaer paleontologist Dr. Thomas Martens. Together with vertebrate paleontologists from the USA and other specialists extensive excavation work and the scientific evaluation of the Thuringian findings occur since then.
By the discovery of the forms of saurian in the Bromacker field could be proved that Europe with North America and the other today's continents formed a gigantic land mass which is called supercontinent Pangäa. One of the most spectacular findings was the entire skeleton of one saurian, named Diadectes absitus, which lived before approx. 290 Mil. years.
