I know about the continent shifts and the area doesn't have to be exact, just 'the Middle East' would be helpful.
I've tried all combinations of Middle East, Near East, Asia, Iraq, Iran, paleontology, prehistoric as well as specific era names - Jurassic, Cenozoic, etc.
The information doesn't have to be super-detailed, just a general idea of what the topography and climatology would be like for any given era. Unfortunately whenever I try to look anything up, I just find information about oil deposits. Not what I'm looking for.
Any budding paleontologists who can point me in the right direction? I'd be really grateful.
