BUKKABRANY, Hungary (AFP) - Archaeologists have found an eight-million-year old forest of cypresses, well preserved and not fossilised, in Bukkabrany in north eastern Hungary.
"The discovery is exceptional as the trees kept their wooden structure, they neither turned into coal nor were petrified," Tamas Pusztai, the deputy director and head of the archaeological department at the local Otto Herman museum who oversaw the excavation, told AFP.

that was some super-mega sandstorm that buried those
swamp dwelling Cyprus Trees in 6 meters (~18 ft) of sand.
and resulting in a type of tree preservation
sounds like there was a dramatic 'climate shange' back then too...
(can't blame that on man caused greenhouse gasses Mr Gore)
