'Oldest dinosaur' fossil discovery

"Palaeontologists in Brazil say they may have found the oldest known dinosaur fossil...

...The fossils - which include two skulls and other bones - date back to the high Triassic period...

...It is a period of evolution about which there is little evidence and which has generated sharp debate among palaeontologists...

...The new find appears to have some characteristics of the Thecodonts and some of the dinosaur, and so may offer vital clues as to the evolutionary chain." [BBC News]
