When Did Dinosaurs REALLY Become Extinct?

Did humans really walk with Dinosaurs?

Dinosaurs existed more than 230 million years ago, and became extinct around 66 million years ago. Humans only appearing 5 or 7 million years ago means that they never co existed, much less interacted with dinosaurs, right? However, there have been clues that found humans DID interact with these prehistoric lizards.

One clue is the “brow horn” found in May 2012 from a triceratops dated around 35,500 years ago.

The Triceratops is believed to have first appeared around 68 million years ago during Cretaceous period. A sample of brow horn found in Montana was sent to a Paleochronology group to carry out carbon-14 dating. A carbon-14 dating found that the object had origins just shy of 54,000 years old.
A model created by the group in 2003 showed that dinosaur bones had C-14 dates that ranged from 22,000 to 39,000 years. There are many more examples of dinosaurs sightings, from Ica stones in Peru that showed images of dinosaurs, to the Native American arrowheads that were mixed together with Iguanodons and Duck- billed dinosaur fossils.

Did dinosaurs die off as early as we had previously thought?
