Archaeologists have dated the eggs at around 130 million years old. The eggs were like Christmas present from the past discovered on December 25. The construction workers were working on a construction of a secondary school when they saw a group of oval-shaped rocks on the ground where they were using explosives.

The workers found several black debris measuring 2mm thick lodged between oval stones. Workers recognized the oval stones as dinosaur eggs and reported the find to the authorities.
