The Lower Permian fossillagerstätte Bromacker in the Thuringian Forest near Gotha is well known for its diverse tetrapod fauna and well-preserved trackways. The locality is considered one of the first terrestrial vertebrate ecosystems world-wide and yields spectacular articulated fossils preserved in fine sandstones and shales.

The Foundation Friedenstein Castle/Museum of Nature Gotha and the Museum of Natural History Berlin will potentially start a large-scale excavation beginning in 2018.

I will update this page as soon as more information is available.
