The Politehnica metro station in Romania’s capital city of Bucharest, near the Politehnica University of Bucharest, sees relatively little traffic, but is still used by thousands of subway passengers each day. Its pink marble floors are trodden over by the feet of thousands of students of the Politehnica University and those of the Faculty of Journalism of the University of Bucharest, as well as the workers of the Apaca textiles factory and the employees of Vodafone Romania, whose headquarter is located nearby.

The station’s marble floors are stained with odd patterns, not usually seen in marble slabs. Yet, aside from the occasional casual glance, few passengers have paid any real attention to these markings. Fewer have stopped to gaze at and appreciate these shapes and fewer still have pondered on its mystery. Many would stop dead in their tracks if you are to tell them they are treading on 80-million-year-old fossils.
