To read an earlier blog post about “The Dinosaurs Rediscovered”: “The Dinosaurs Rediscovered” by Professor Michael Benton.
Professor Benton outlines the changes in palaeontology over the last twenty years. He discusses new fossil discoveries and the impact of new technologies on research. The book illustrates how our perceptions regarding the Dinosauria have changed. We are living in a “golden age” of dinosaur research.
The book has proved to be extremely popular. It has been widely praised.
The eminent British palaeontologist Richard Fortey OBE stated that the book was an engaging account of the evolution of the “terrible lizards”. It is aimed at readers with a general interest in life in the past.
