Tales from the K/Pg boundary (Used to be K/T!)

Visiting the Mesozoic/Cenozoic Boundary

This Blog entry is a very personal description of a visit to the place where Alvarez and Alvarez discovered a clay layer extraordinarily enriched in iridium and from which they posited a meteorite impact and the death of the dinosaurs. For the author it has a more personal meaning which has no great geological importance but is rather charming. And the Osteria gets very good reviews - seems a very good place to visit.
