Find files newer than x days

We had an arrant rsync run and started copying over new files from one system to another.

Although this is what we will want to do at some point, for now, we want to maintain the system as it was a few days ago.

I am looking for a script that will find files that are newer than x days.

Ultimately I want to traverse directories looking for these and delete but having the find command work is step one.

Thanx in advance
