Everything would be gone in a very short time, but certainly in
a million years it would be hard to find evidence that we were
here. Yes it might be possible for a few trinkets or such to be
left behind, but geologic change and debris accumulation is
faster than you might think.

We're not talking about a short duration, but 100 million to 160
million years ago. There would be nothing left to see. Also the
continents aren't even in the same place and the region they may
have inhabited, Antarctica in under many feet of ice. There's no
reason that this couldn't be true. Yes it might be too fantastic
for you, but I don't think so.
