    time or age

    However, 65 million years ago the age of dinosaur ended.

    Could I replace age with "time(s)"?

    In other words, what is the difference between the two words in the meaning of " a certain period in history"? Are they interchangeable?


    Thanks

    Jason

    "65 million years ago the time of the dinosaurs ended" is fine, but "the age of dinosaurs" is a common form, like "the age of chivalry" and "the age of exploration".
