(ECNS) -- Some 70-million-year-old fossilized dinosaur eggs, which date back to the early and mid-Late Cretaceous period, have been found in Wuning county, East China's Jiangxi Province.

An excavator driver found the fossils and fragments while working on a construction site in Wuning County.

"We stopped digging after finding the fossils attached to the rock, which were suspected to be dinosaur eggs," said Wu Jianlu, an employee at the construction site, "We immediately called the Wuning County Museum, and they invited experts to come for investigation."

Zhang Linhong, an employee from Wuning County Museum said: "We went to check the eggs, and found that they were likely dinosaur egg fossils. Now, about 11 dinosaur egg prints have been found on the rock. Among them, one egg's shell has peeled off, while another two are well-preserved."

Experts from the museum have made necessary protection on the site and transported the rock to the museum for preservation.

After professional research by experts, the egg fossils were confirmed as dinosaur egg fossils. They are now kept in the museum, and further research will be carried out.
