It’s not every day that a stegosaur travels from Wyoming to London. In a special talk at Dorset County Museum, find out how the Natural History Museum recently acquired the most complete skeleton of the iconic Jurassic dinosaur Stegosaurus.

In his first lecture on the subject outside London, Professor Paul Barrett, Head of Fossil Vertebrates and Anthropology at the Natural History Museum, explains all.

“The Stegosaurus launch took over my life,” explains Professor Barrett, “But we can now talk about this whole story and what we have in store for the specimen in London.”

After a year of working on the specimen in secret, Professor Barrett, the Natural History Museum’s resident dinosaur specialist, will reveal many secrets about the biology of dinosaurs and their evolutionary patterns. Many of the images which have been confidential until now will be shown on the night.

Professor Barrett’s talk takes place at 6.30pm on Wednesday 14th January. Entry is FREE and donations are welcome on the night to cover costs.
