The Dinosaurs Rediscovered: How a Scientific Revolution is Rewriting History

Venue: Llwyfan Cymru – Wales Stage

New technologies have revealed secrets locked in prehistoric bones in ways that nobody predicted. We can now work out the colour of dinosaurs, their bite forces, top speeds, and even how they cared for their young. Remarkable new fossil finds, such as giant sauropod dinosaur skeletons from Patagonia, dinosaurs with feathers from China and even a tiny dinosaur tail in Burmese amber – complete down to every detail of its filament-like feathers, skin, bones, and mummified tail muscles – have revolutionised palaeontology. Mike Benton is Professor of Vertebrate Palaeontology at the University of Bristol.
