The Paleocene is a geologic epoch that lasted from about 66 to 56 million years ago. The Paleocene Epoch immediately followed the mass extinction event at the end of the Cretaceous, known as the Cretaceous-Paleogene (K-Pg) boundary, which marks the demise of non-avian dinosaurs, the giant marine reptiles and much other fauna and flora. The die-off of the dinosaurs left unfilled ecological niches worldwide. (wiki)

Do you know of another WHS we could connect to Paleocene?
A connection should:
- Not be "self evident"
- Link at least 3 different sites
- Not duplicate or merely subdivide the "Category" assignment already identified on this site.
- Add some knowledge or insight (whether significant or trivial!) about WHS for the users of this site
- Be explained, with reference to a source
