About the Session 

How have scientific ideas about life in the very distant past changed? Using dinosaur fossils as sources of evidence we will investigate how our understanding of dinosaurs has changed over time, and how it continues to change as we find more fossil evidence. We’ll discover just how rare dinosaur fossils are and look at some examples of how we interpret fossils by looking at the characteristics of animals that are alive today. Seated talk with some object handling.       

Duration: 1.5 hours
