This is probably a temporary location in the south of France. In 2005 a roundabout was being build. The rocks were dumped south of the Intermarche supoermarket. Most fossils could be found between the dumped rocks.
In Espéraza there is also a small museum where you can see the Dinosaur fossils froim the Aude valley. The museum is located at the Avenue de Chalabre. The excavations itself can be visitted in july and august.
