New and astounding dinosaur fossils continue to be discovered across the globe, shedding ever more light on what dinosaurs were and how they lived.
Ben Garrod will discuss some of these new findings about animals which were dominant on land for about 135 million years from  the Triassic, through the Jurassic and into the Cretaceous geological periods. He will talk in particular about a recent titanosaur discovery that he’s been following as part of a BBC 1 programme. This has included him helping 3D scan the largest thigh bone he’s ever seen.
Please note, the lecture takes place at Tyndall Lecture Theatre, University of Bristol NOT Bristol Museum & Art Gallery. Parking can be difficult so please arrive an extra 15 minutes to allow plenty of time. Access on foot is via the Royal Fort entrance, along the path and to the left.
