Fossil Sea Dragons at Radstock Museum

The exhibition of marine reptile fossils at Radstock Museum will be on display from February 2nd until March 25th 2009.
In 1996, Simon Carpenter found a giant marine reptile called a pliosaur at the Blue Circle Cement works at Westbury, Wiltshire. This was excavated by a team of geologists from Bristol City Museum & Art Gallery and the University of Bristol. The specimen was donated by Blue Circle Cement PLC to Bristol City Museum. Simon's new crocodile has been named Dakosaurus carpenteri after its discoverer. (Click here for more details - 'Fossil Collector is immortalised')
