The cache of eggs, which date back to the late Cretaceous Period, was partially buried in mud in China’s Pingxiang region.
The finding was made at the weekend and reported to a local museum, where the eggs have now been placed.
Amazing footage shows six fossilised dinosaur eggs of different sizes being displayed, all covered in red mud.
Experts from the Chinese Academy of Science studied the fossils, and confirmed that they are indeed dinosaur eggs.
Jiangxi Province has been the site of an extraordinarily large number of fossil finds over recent years and has been described as China’s “hometown of dinosaurs“.
The area was a thriving habitat for dinosaurs in the Cretaceous and Jurassic periods, and the massive amount of building work going on across China is leading to frequent fossil discoveries.
In April 15, 2010, a dinosaur egg fossil was found on a building site, and in September 2008, several complete dinosaur skeleton fossils were unearthed and another nearby construction site.
In 2017, a clutch of 30 perfectly preserved dinosaur eggs were discovered by construction workers digging the foundations for a new school.
Elsewhere in the world of palaeontology, a fossil dinosaur that was discovered by a 16-year old bone-digger has finally been classified an given a proper scientific name.
The newly named dinosaur, a close relative of the fearsome Tyrannosaurus rex, was dug up by high school student Sterling Nesbitt during a dig in New Mexico in 1998.
Dr Nesbitt, now an assistant professor at the Virginia Tech College of Science, led an international collaboration of scientists to classify the dinosaur, which will henceforth be known as Suskityrannus hazelae.
