Caption: Cretaceous world map. Elliptical projection of the Earth's continents as they appeared during the Cretaceous Period (145 to 65 million years ago). The alignment of the continents shown here dates to around 65 million years ago, the extinction of the dinosaurs. The continents as we know them today are beginning to form, following the break up of the supercontinent of Pangea that existed from 300 to 200 million years ago. For the break up of Pangea and world maps for the Triassic, Jurassic and Cretaceous periods, see images C018/0196 to C018/0199.
