Not so long ago the Stamford and District Geological Society had the pleasure of meeting Dean Lomax at one of Winter Talks in Tinwell Village hall. And heard the most truly fascinating and somewhat intriguing discussions we have ever had.
And now the world will hear about the Dinosaurs of Britain….don’t miss it.
Dinosaurs! The very word conjures up fascination and intrigue with millions of us dreaming of becoming a palaeontologist when we were younger. Yet few of us realise that over 50 diﬀerent dinosaur species have been found in Britain.
Dinosaur Britain tells the amazing story of many of the dinosaurs that once roamed our country revealing how they hunted, what they ate and how they died from the evidence revealed from their bones.
Presenter Ellie Harrison, who fell in love with dinosaurs as a child, teams up with 25‐year‐old Dean Lomax, one of Britain’s youngest palaeontologists, to bring Dinosaur Britain to life as never before. Ellie and Dean come ‘face to face’ with incredible CGI dinosaurs against the backdrop of some of Britain’s most famous landmarks – including Big Ben and Stonehenge.
Britain has yielded one of the best dinosaur fossil records anywhere in the world. Giant Sauropods measuring over 20 metres – the length of two double decker buses – once lived throughout Britain.
Raptors, fast moving and carnivorous pack‐hunters, were discovered in Dorset – along with three types of Tyrannosaur. Huge teeth from the Iguanodon were discovered in Sussex while stegosaurs, with armoured plates positioned along their back, lived in Swindon and Peterborough.
From the world’s ﬁrst dinosaur discovery in Stonesﬁeld, Oxfordshire in 1824 to the most recent discovery – a new dinosaur species discovered in Wales in 2014 – Dinosaur Britain features the most fascinating dinosaur ﬁnds across Britain to tell an enthralling story 200 million years in the making.
