I would love to go and search for fossils in Iran and Afghanistan. It has not been explored in a long time. It's just the right kind of landscape to hold preserved fossils, as this stable area of the continent has not been subjected to many major geological events that destroy fossils. But again, politics is in the way of science. There have been wars in those areas in recent years.
