New dinosaur exhibition in Scarborough
9:00am Saturday 19th May 2012 in What's on
Final preparations are taking place for a new dinosaur exhibition in North Yorkshire.
Running from May 26, until September 2013, at Scarborough’s Rotunda Museum, Scarborough’s Lost Dinosaurs aims to answer a question which has baffled geologists for years: why, when so many “trace” fossils – mainly dinosaur footprints – have been found in the resort, have so few dinosaur bones been found?
And the dino fun starts for families over half-term, with a series of events from Monday, June 4, to Saturday, June 9.
Scarborough Museums Trust chief executive Shirley Collier said: “This new exhibition will bring this amazing period of earth history to life. For the first time ever nearly all the dinosaur bones found on our coastline will be on display in one place. They may be small in number but they more than make up for it in importance and rarity.”
