UNESCO - Stevns Klint, Denmark

Continuing the nordic whs trail, another very interesting site...one of the more recent ones, inscribed in 2014. And again from the forum's tag section, and with interesting stamps, thank you Rebekka :)
Stevns Klint is a globally exceptional testimony of meteorite impact on the history of life on Earth. The property provides evidence of the Chixulub meteorite impact that took place at the end of the Cretaceous Period, c.67 million years ago, and is widely believed to have caused the end of the Age of the Dinosaurs - the most recent of the major mass extinctions in Earth’s history. An exceptional fossil record is visible at the site, showing the complete succession of fauna and micro-fauna charting the recovery after the mass extinction.
