A story at Discovery News tells of how a paleontologist from the University of Milan found a dinosaur skull embedded in the marble facing of part of the Cathedral of St. Ambrose in the Italian town of Vigevano.

The skull was fossilized in a piece of marble which was later cut into slabs to be used in constructing the cathedral, sometime between 1532 and 1660. This resulted in perfect hoizontal cross-sections of the skull, looking much like a CAT scan.
